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

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 ...

" Notes: Since I kept hearing some really impressive things about this movie (for example, it has been on the IMDb top 250 for a while already), I was really eager to check this flick and I had some rather high expectations. Well, to be be honest, even though I found many things to admire, I can't say it really blew me away though. I mean, it is definitely a gorgeous stop motion animated feature, probably one of the very best I have ever seen, at least in this area. The main issue I had is that"

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (140 movies items)

" - Rewatched | Third time Mary and Max is a triumph when it comes to combing lighthearted humor with dark and depressing themes. Brought to life by quirky and charming stop-motion animation, this film is as emotionally involving as it is weird and cute. While the film is certainly sweet and full of heartwarming moments, it's also a film that deals with themes of isolation, loneliness, depression, suicide, obesity and mental illness. One of those themes alone is enough to make for a very heavy-ha"
