Mary and Max: go see it

Mary and Max posterAdam Elliot’s new feature length animation Mary and Max is something it’s doubtful we’ll see the likes of again. Painfully exposed portraits of people on the fringes, touching lessons on how to fathom the world and survive, a poignant reminder of how terribly important friendship is, and sublimely beautiful and finely crafted animation which puts CGI to shame. Worth every minute of the five years it took to make. It’s based on a true story and the end had me in a flood of tears but I’ve had it from Adam himself that the reason for those tears is alive and well today. Bless. How good is it to live in Melbourne with such wonderful creative people.

The film has some flaws which are more than made up for by its utter uniqueness. So go see it and revel in the detail and relax into the storytelling. And then give a friend a call.
