Spanish heartbreaker Wrinkles follows the Oscar-nominated The *Illusionist in illustrating the visual beauty and tender emotion that can be created by traditional animation techniques. Ignacio Ferreras's adaptation of the award-winning graphic novel is as achingly poignant and real a tale of old age as anything that flesh and blood cinema has of ered. When former bank manager Emilio starts to show the early signs of Alzheimer's, his family dispatch him to an institution. His roommate is wily, wheeler-dealer Miguel who guides him through life and death in his new home. The result is a wry, smartly observed account of the challenges and indignities of old age that is one of the finest films of the year. *Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: European Cinema.
