What is the movie Mary and Max about?
This 2009 clay animated black comedy features a star studded voice cast with names such as Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Toni Collette and Eric Bana in starring roles. The story follows the relationship of two unlikely pen pals spanning decades. Marry is an 8 years old Australian girl, the only child in a lover class family with a distant father and an alcoholic mother. With no other way to entertain herself she takes up letter correspondence, choosing a random name from a New York City phonebook. Her accidental pen pal is Max, a 44-years old morbidly obese man who has problems creating bonds with other people and rarely leaves his apartment. They strike up a correspondence which lasts for many years, and we see their letters helping both of them deal with personal issues. After spending some time in an institution, Max manages to conquer some of his social anxieties, while Mary grows up, gets married and becomes a psychiatrist. When she decides to write a psychological book detailing his relationship with Max and his history of mental issues, Max is outraged and decides to cut off all ties with Mary. This sends Mary into a tail spin, and she resorts to alcohol, gives up her academic career and gets divorced. Ultimately, Max forgives her and sends her another letter, but Mary doesn’t know it until her neighbor brings her the package that was sitting on her front porch for days. Awaken from her stupor, Mary travels to New York to finally meet Max in person. She comes to his apartment and finds Max dead on his bed, with his eyes open towards the ceiling and a serene expression on his face. The entire ceiling was covered with Mary’s letters, and she breaks down into tears realizing how much their friendship meant to Max.

This is the story about reality the way it is, and about the sins of the society, about loneliness and friendship, about betrayal and forgiveness, and about the fact that you feel your best friend with your heart. I watched this cartoon by accident and since the first few minutes realized that it will be very interesting, and it didn’t disappoint me. At the end of it i even cried! It is a very touching story about real friendship. At the beginning i was a bit confused by the unusual graphics, but later i even liked it! I guess there is something special about it. I enjoyed that everything in it was said and done just like that, for nothing in return, everything has sense, and seemed to be too real and very familiar. During not a big period of time there were brought a lot of important themes, and after watching it i had many things to think of. though to my great surprise not every person likes it, i loved it so much that made a few of my friends watching it, but they didn’t like it at all!

This movie is an amazing and touching story that is based on true events, about the friendship in correspondence between a girl from Australia, with a jewish from New York who suffered from mental disorder! It is not a cartoon, it is an animation movie for the adults people. The animation is very original, and made in the minimal style. I think it is necessary to watch this cartoon in a certain mood, because the atmosphere of it is a bit depressing, though the monologues of the heroes are wonderful! This is a story of how two different people were able to keep their friendship through many years, the lonely 8 years old girl, who suffered from the mocks upon hr, and the 44 years old atheist suffering the Asperger’s syndrome. Their friendship started due to an accident luck and it grew up into something real that was helping both of them, and was giving new knowledge to them, it was supporting them in the hardest moments of their life, and which they kept to the rest of their lives though never met each other in person!

Once upon a time, on two different continents lived two lonely creatures! Mary eight years and Max forty four years. About people like them it is not very common mentioning in the social communication, as the society prefers keeping them away from their understanding! And those “quite weird” according to the thoughts of our social people, little by little step by step by means of correspondence are welcoming each other into each other’s life. This way starts a very touchy friendship that lasts for years! And that is thrilling everyone behind the other part of the screen. Adam Elliot has created a cartoon that is showing weak subjects, but in a gentle way in order not to shock the viewer but to allow “swallowing” it with pleasure! It is an amazing movie, that is shown in a very original way, that is why watching it is so easy! I think there is no person in the world who would stay indifferent after watching this movie!
