Product Description

Max and Mona (Amazon.com Exclusive)

Traditional beliefs say that the souls of the dead will not join their ancestors until the mourners cry at their graves. Max Bua, 19, from a South African farm community, has inherited his grandfathers talent for mourning. Despite this heaven-sent gift, Max has his sights set on becoming a doctor and must travel to Johannesburg to begin his studies. With money the villagers collected for his tuition fees, and a wedding gift, he sets off to the city. Arriving too late to register and secure his room at the university, Max must seek out his infamous Uncle Norman.

Director Teddy Mattera has constructed a slapstick comedy about a young boys coming of age and his wild adventure with a most unlikely partner in crime.

"A rollicking mix of farce and folly!"
-San Francisco Art Institute

"A quirky combination of love, tears, death and comedy. 'Max and Mona' is a Charming and deftly made film!"
-London Film Festival

Max and Mona is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Afrikaans with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

The story is absolutely brilliant, with sharp wit, tongue in cheek satire and a clever plot. --The Herald

A quirky combination of love, tears, death and comedy. Max and Mona is a charming and deftly made film! --London Film Festival

A shaggy goat story. Teddy Mattera applies a wonderfully mythic touch! --Variety

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird Movie April 22, 2014
By Yarica
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was a weird movie- it wasn't really funny. However it did hold my attention right to the end. The plot is so twisted and the characters so colorful, that you can't help but finish it. I don't know, I sort of liked it- which in itself is weird.

It was engaging and kept your attention as another reviewer said but I could not get with the sense of humor in this film, found it a little disturbing

4.0 out of 5 stars Max and Mona July 20, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie is truly a blend of urbanistic selfishness and cultural burden to emmancipation. One has to balance himself on top to escape these two opposite but selfish environments.
