Amoeba Review

New high-definition digital restoration with remastered stereo soundtrack.



“What could be better than a black comedy romance between a suicidal teen and a feisty 79-year-old widow? NOTHING. It’s one of the best stories ever. I never feel like killing myself after seeing this movie!” – Super Cooper, Hollywood

 

With the idiosyncratic American fable Harold and Maude, countercultural director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. Working from a script by Colin Higgins, Ashby tells the story of the emotional and romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian (Ruth Gordon). Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, Harold And Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light, along with the ones that separate people by class, gender, and age, and it features indelible performances and a remarkable soundtrack by Cat Stevens.
