Reviews

un classico del cinema, con una delle coppie piu' improbabili mai apparse sullo schermo. una storia che sfida tutte le convenzioni sulle storie d'amore. bud cort e' harold, un giovane annoiato dalla ricchezza e attratto dalla morte. ruth gordon e' maude, una meravigliosa arzilla vecchietta, che ama godersi la vita e ha fiducia nel mondo e nelle persone. un film stravagante, spiritoso e coinvolgente che dimostra che lamore non conosce barriere. la colonna sonora di cat stevens aggiunge magia alla magia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little black comedy 24 Sep 2007
By Jason Mills VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I hadn't seen this for 20 years, and its broad black humour is even funnier than I remembered. It's a subversive little story of a morbid youth in love with an old and slightly bonkers woman, who is nonetheless younger than him on the inside. Although Maude is nearing death, it's Harold who needs saving, so their relationship is a bittersweet passing-on of the joy of life. Original and memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very dark and very funny. An extreme work 23 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Briefly, Harold and Maude is an early seventies film waking up from the hangover at the end of the sixties. It's a highly creative and well crafted account of a bizarre set of relationships between Harold (Bud Cort), death (Goths will like this bit!), cars (E-Type Jaguar hearse), his rich and societal mother and a fabulously delinquent senior citizen Maude (Ruth Gordon).
You'll either find it sick or inciteful, adolescent or poignant. It's one of my favourite films of all time and has the added benefit a lovable Cat Stevens sound track.
Watch this film and start to understand the diversity and creativity that underpinned the seventies arts scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is something else 7 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw this film by mistake a few years ago and it completely changed how I see things. It was made for a different generation than mine (I'm 21), but I think the world would be a better place if everyone my age saw it. It's the only film I could watch an infinate number of times, in fact I always put it on when I'm not feeling my best - and even when I am! Hal Ashby is a god for making this. It's more than a film, it's a lesson in life.

Harold is a very confused young man, who attends funerals in his spare time. Maud is a very old lady, who has such a joy for life, you immediately love her. When they meet at a funeral the story is set.
Maud teaches Harold how to enjoy life and that it is there to be lived. She pulls some wonderful stunts and it leaves you wanting to go out and do what she is doing now before you get to her age. It also makes you realise that life is there for the taking and to be grabbed by the throat and lived to the full.
Although it should be a sad ending, it gives you hope and makes you wonder at life and love.
It is a wonderful film, full of fun, laughter and joy and a must for anyone who loves to see life from a different point of view.
It also has a wonderful sound track by Cat Stevens, which fits is ideally with the mood of the film.
Things to watch out for are at the very start of the film when Harolds mother is trying to pair him off and his numerous (non serious) attempts at suicide.
A lovely, warm film suitable for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest film ever! 5 Nov 2007
By Truman
Format:DVD
I'll be the first to admit that in some ways this film hasn't aged well. It was filmed in the early seventies and looks every bit it's age. But underneath the rough exterior, there's a fantastic film here - one that's funny, moving, intelligent and downright weird in places. Yes, the story is about a 20-year old man/boy falling in love with a 79-year old woman, but what's so remarkable about this film is that it's done is such a wonderful way. It's not disgusting, or creepy, or sick - it's love, which is never wrong, just sometimes strane. The film is full of fantastic little touches that a less-compentent director might have messed up, but Hal Ashby was a director who understood film and he doesn't put a foot wrong here. The film also has a fantastic soundtrack made up of Cat Stevens songs, and if you're not humming the tune for "If you want to sing out" at the end, then I pity you. Harold and Maude is everything you could possibly hope for in a film - PLEASE buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars How odd! But still hypnoyically brilliant. 28 Oct 2003
By Paolo
Format:VHS Tape
Well! i don't quite know what inspired me to buy this video, but it has to be one of the best decisions I ever made. ( Not least because i now have a favourite film that nobody in my generation - 19 - has heard of. )
The film asks a lot of you. It makes you question the boudaries of love and whether they actually exist. It invites you to laugh at the dark side of things and the playful mock-suicides of Harold, as well as the pure energy and joy of Maude's view on life. It leaves you inspired by the union of two completely different people. It basically does everything a movie should.
The music fits the movie perfectly, and the characters are so wondefully crafted that you find yourself laughing at them without knowing why. Like Harold's mother constantly trying to set him up, and answering a dating questionaire for him. That said, the film is covered in very black overtones, which make it moving and mysterious.
A masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harold and Maude for King and Queen! 8 Feb 2007
By Four Violets VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really love this film. Its in my top 5 all-time favourite films. I will still be watching in in years to come....its that good. And think about it, how many films nowadays are there you could watch even twice? Maybe the Cat Stevens music has a lot to do with it. Its just so uplifting, positive and very, very funny.
