“Mary & Max is a claymated feature film from the creators of the Academy Award winning short animation Harvie Krumpet. It is a simple tale of pen-friendship between two very different people; Mary Dinkle, a chubby lonely eight year old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max Horovitz, a 44 year old, severely obese, Jewish man with Asperger´s Syndrome living in the chaos of New York.
Spanning twenty years and two continents, Mary and Max´s friendship survives much more than the average diet of life´s ups and downs. Like Harvie Krumpet, Mary and Max is innocent but not naïve, as it takes us on a journey, psychiatry, alcoholism, where babies come from, obesity, kleptomania, sexual difference, trust, copulating dogs, religious difference, agoraphobia and much much more.”
It´s one of the most original movies I’ve ever seen, I really like how at first it seems to be just another animation, but it´s very creative, shows a complex plot and makes us think about issues that society characterized as complicated, and all in one “innocent” animation, is a very touching, interesting and beautiful movie.
