Edit:// 12 hours have passed, and I can't help but love it. For fuck's sake.
I reckon it was the shock factor of the wolf part. But looking at what the film is, a look into growing up and parenthood. You receive a lot of the emotion Hana goes through taking care of children in a *cough* unique situation. In some form, we all choose a way for ourselves, and although it may not be wolf or human, we do have that. Ignoring the animalistic side of things, this may be one of the best portrayals of a family on screen. I don't blame those thrown off by the wolf-human breeding aspect, I was 12 hours ago. Now, all I can think about is how Hana renovated an entire farmhouse single-handedly, just so that her family could have a home and be free to be themselves. That's incredibly powerful. And it has stuck with me all day.
