Based on the award-winning comic by Paco Roca, 'Wrinkles' portrays the poignant and charming friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two elderly gentlemen shut away in a care home. Recent arrival Emilio who is m the early stages of Alzheimer's is helped by new roommate Miguel to avoid doctors discovering his ongoing deterioration. In order to avoid ending up on the feared top 'lost causes' floor, Miguel employs all kinds of elaborate and comical stunts throughout their tedious day-to-day routine. This struggle helps shape a genuine and strong relationship between the two of them, because although for some their lives are coming to an end, for Emilio and Miguel it is just beginning. This astonishing story of humanity, friendship and the fragility of old age will make you laugh and cry in equal measures.
Would rate higher if in original soundtrack

I absolutely loathe dubbed films and this is a typical nasal mid-US disaster. The C Par. info suggests it's original, but it isn't so FAIL!!! esp as I'm trying to learn Spanish!

XXX CARE DUBBED WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT XXX
- Wrinkles review by MC
You are led to understand that the film is in Spanish. IT IS NOT. IT IS DUBBED WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT WHICH IS REALLY DISAPPOINTING. I would not have rented this film if I had known. I am sure it loses something in the translation.
The first two minutes were funny, after that I struggled to see any humour and found it depressing and dull - sorry

After the age of hola hola.
- Wrinkles review by TF
A Spanish cartoon dubbed in America. Ignore the dubbing which is not great. However the story has humour, and you will sympathise with the characters. I don't think that actors would have captured the frailty of old age in the way that animation can; for instance In the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the characters are old, but hardly frail, - here they are.
