Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Remarkable and poignant...
Fresh: In a perverse and often immature way, it forthrightly deals with mature issues of love, friendship, forgiveness and mental health. It requires a mature audience, but an audience nonetheless.
Fresh: The universe that is inhabited by Mary and Max is breathtaking, and must have required years of painstaking attention to detail to forge.
Fresh: This clay animation feels as if it was written by the early Woody Allen. Actually the genius behind it is Adam Elliot, who wrote, designed and directed this eccentric, wryly funny story.
Where is the soundtrack please ?
One of the Best Movies of 2009
I work in the animation industry, and to say I see a lot of movies would be an understatement. I had a chance to see Mary & Max in a theatre and was blown away. It's easily one of my favorite movies of 2009 and definitely on my top 10 all-time list, as it's charming, touching, poignant, and funny. I thought it was a crime it didn't get a theatrical release in the US or an Academy Award nomination. I was ecstatic to see it for sale on iTunes, though, both because I wanted to watch it again and because I wanted all my friends to buy a copy!
This is a must own. At the very least a must watch. It will remind you of what it is like to look at the world with the logic of a child.
