Sublime film of warmth, humour and power

"You are my best friend. You are my only friend."

In this cinematic era of computer animation, the art of claymation (for which hand-moulded figurines are painstakingly photographed one frame at a time) is slowly dissolving. Aardman Studios (the guys behind Wallace and Gromit) seem to be the only ones who still possess the patience required to continue the practise into the 21st Cen... read more

Underrated treasure of inspiration and tragedy.

After reading many fantastic reviews of this film and the fact that Mary And Max still wasn't released in Britain despite it has been released for a year, I just couldn't resist watching it. What I got out of this was 90 minutes of raw emotion, dark comedy and mind-blowing animation. It is an extremely underrated film that should have been nominated for Best Animated Picture to be tough competitio... read more

Adam Elliot e suas síndromes.

O diretor e roteirista australiano Adam Elliot, da animação “Harvie Krumpet” (2003) premiada com Oscar de melhor curta, retoma sua combinação de fantasia mordaz em claymation (animação feita com moldes de argila) para traçar vinte anos de um improvável amizade no conto sincero e sombrio “Mary and Max”(2009).

Description: Academy Award-winning Harvie Krumpet director Adam Elliot returns to the world of clay animation with this simple tale of the innocent correspondence between a portly eight year old girl from the suburbs of Melbourne and a morbidly obese, middle-aged Jewish New Yorker suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. On the surface it would seem that Mary (Toni Collette) and Max (Philip Seymour Hoffman) would have little in common, but over the course of twenty years, the unlikely pen pals exchange letters discussing everything from taxidermy, trust, pets, religion, obesity, autism, agoraphobia, alcoholism, and just about any other topic that ...

The Emotional Connection (9 movies items)

" Seeing as how this list is called "The Emotional Connection", it makes sense that we've now come to a movie entirely about an emotional connection. The premise about a 44-year-old man that becomes friends with a young girl sounds creepy, but it's far from that. Many times, I wanted to give a hug to the two characters, especially Max. Having grown up in New York City and dealing with autism, I empathized with him, though Mary gets her share of sympathy from me as well. The best thing about Ma"
