Movie Info

Fabled Japanese filmmaker Nagisa Oshima was the guiding hand behind the fast-paced French comedy Max, Mon Amour.

On the whole, it works as a witty, black comedy of manners that judiciously avoids the vulgarity inherent in the subject.

A wry mix of King Kong and My Man Godfrey, it's a potent premise that somehow never catches fire...

If you've wondered what kind of continental TV pilot Sherwood Schwartz might have devised from watching Zoo, here's your answer.
