a soul dissector. this film contains everything anyone would ever need to live/survive. it will break you in so many ways but it will also gather the pieces and restore a better more content version of you. that’s exactly how i feel, right now.
This is becoming one of the rare animation that can deeply moved me. A truly remarkable and emotional story of a great friendship of two unlikely characters. "God give us relatives,thank God we can choose our friends".
J'ai enfin trouvé le DVD et je lais acheté, un de meilleurs achats a vie. Je lais vissionné pour une troisième fois et c'est,oui, un chef d'oeuvre. Un excellent premier long métrage pour Adam Elliot. LE FILM de 2009 dans mon cas.
A refreshing movie told with the bittersweet and witty ironic black humor about friendship and loneliness. There's lots to laugh and to think about Mary and Max. The characters and subject are interesting. This movie is different from many mainstream animated films because the humor in this pulled off so effortlessly with the more simpler things in life. I also love how the movie is made using stop motion animation.
Plumbing the depths of loneliness and depression through stop-motion animation is something you don't often see, but Elliot certainly pulls it off in this fascinating if incredibly sad story. There is nothing simple about this story and the level of detail is superb!
