Mary and Max

Review: Mary and Max

23 Feb 11

Darkly comic, beautifully sad

A triumph of animation and heartfelt emotion. Wonderfully moving, warm, dark, funny and sad. The two characters reside in a lovingly detailed but bleak and colour drained world which emphasises their depressed melancholic lives. Philip Seymour Hoffman voices the character of Max to perfection. A beautifully made film, one of my favourites this year
