Synopsis

A little lamb’s life is turned upside down by the wolf that killed his mother. He seeks to avenge his mother, but in order to defeat the wolf, he must become one.

Review

This is an old, and very obscure film about a sheep, it’s a really sad and moving tale despite the fact that it seems aimed for children and has clear aspects that weren’t for me. It has a slow start but really gets better once you see the development of the characters.

Chirin’s mum gets killed by a wolf, Chirin is a sheep by the way, and he goes to the wolf to learn from him, so that he can one day kill him. Watching Chirn journey and encounter the wolf is fascinating and his growth as a sheep is fun to watch! But the sad thing is that it’s his ultimate downfall at the end which causes him to struggle so much despite the strength he gains. I don’t want to ruin this one, so spoilers from here I guess?

Chirin learns from the wolf and becomes a terrifying ram, with grey skin and terrifying horns. He kills his mentor while they’re attacking the sheep but the sheep don’t accept him due to his monstrous growth and he is forced to live alone in isolation.

  1. I watched this film because of a Digibro video and I’m very glad I did. I was thinking about making a post about how it’s the ultimate bait and switch, but I suppose now I’ll wait a little while. I’ve been enjoying this series so far, I would say keep it up but I already know that it’s going to keep coming.

    • Yeah I watched it for the same reasons, it was actually the only one from that show that I watched even though I intended to watch more. The ending was really great, I think the opening and middle lacked a little bit but I loved the payoff.

      Also have you seen that PCP Uni lecture about Dick and Maddox? I have listened to biggest problem and the Dick show for ages and it’s great, yes I am caught up with all 200 episodes. I highly recommend learning about it. It’s a great show.

      • Yeah, I’ve been keeping up with all of the Radcon 3 stiff as it’s come out. I’ve only watched a few episodes of the Dick Show (the one Digi was on and a couple others), and the first episode of Biggesy Problem

        • I accidentally hit post comment, whoops. Anyway, I’ve seen the first episode of Biggest Problem and am probably going to be watching the rest soon because The Hottest Goss video got me interested.

          • Yeah I’m glad. I say to watch all of biggest problem before the dick show or at least a lot more of it than you already have to get the best experience. Later in the series they tell people not to watch from episode one but Dick has later taken this back and I think it really helps to see their change from good friends to people who don’t get along. It’s also a great show too.

            Digi has stopped being the constant output of podcasts we used to know so this is definitely a good thing to spend the time you would have spent listening too him!
