Mary and Max (2009)

Mary and Max is an animation film that captures one’s attention since the beginning. The objects and scenery made of clay are beautiful and radiate the fact that their creator had inspiration and imagination when making them.

The characters of the movie, are an eight year old girl living in Australia and a grown up living in the States. They both have their bag of problems full. Through mail correspondence, they exchange thoughts, ideas, potential solutions, emotions and … sweats making their lives better or worse than they have ever being before. Adam Elliot with a great sense of bitter-sweat humor discusses the universality of human problems, characters and emotions saying a pack load of thoughts in 92 minutes.

If I was to describe the film in two worlds, I’ d say “amazingly beautiful”. A must see!

My rating: 10/10
