A wonderful tale of love between the old and young,
This review is from: Harold And Maude [VHS] (VHS Tape)
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.
