Mary and Max
Mary and Max
MARY & MAX are a film couple unlike any other, a sort of “Harold and Maude” the other way around, since the Australian girl Mary is the younger of the two and the older Max is a native from New York City. The film, based on a true story, is comical, outlandish and touching at the same time. The two very different characters are in fact pen pals. Mary, an outsider in school, confides in Max and asks him questions like: “Do babies come out of Coke cans in America? Or from pitchers of beer like they do in Australia?” The quirky, overweight Max thoroughly clarifies these fundamental life mysteries for his young friend. The heartwarming comedy-drama, which balances comical and tragic elements and creates a most ingenious clay universe, was awarded, among others, at the International film festival Berlin (Berlinale) in 2009.
