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

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

A very strange movie indeed. Weirdest thing I have ever watched but for some reason it held my attention. Strangest yet most interesting movie I have ever seen...

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

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.
