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.
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.
