Movie Info

Fabled Japanese filmmaker Nagisa Oshima was the guiding hand behind the fast-paced French comedy Max, Mon Amour. The "Max" with whom the elegant Charlotte Rampling falls in love is a circus chimpanzee (played by a short-statured man in a monkey suit). Charlotte's British-ambassador husband Anthony Higgins has long suspected that his wife was cheating on him, but he certainly isn't prepared for her simian paramour. Amazingly, the film never descends into goofiness: Oshima uses his unorthodox plotline to poke holes in the self-protective pretensions of the Bourgeoisie. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Max My Love (Max Mon Amour)

  • Aug 11, 2011
    a curious film, but ultimatly doesnt go the way it should. what starts out as a story of husband and wife. the husband finds shes cheating on him with a chimp, he gets curious, he gets chimp to move in with them, wether or not the wife and chimp are up to dirty things is not explored fully and a oportunity missed. the film then takes a turn and ends up defending a pet animal, a muddled film with good elements throughout showing what could be much more edgy,
