Harold and Maude
Harold and Maude ( Harold and Maude ) is an American film of Hal Ashby left in 1971.
The improbable meeting between Harold, suicidal young man 20 years resulting from the high bourgoisy, and Maude, a militant nonconformist who will celebrate his 80 years. It will learn the life with Harold, which is the joy, happiness and the love, which he did not learn near a cold and strict mother.
Harold and Maude , one time, a frame of mindGenuine “film worship”, Harold and Maude defrayed the chronicle in the whole world, having to undergo different Restriction S or Interdiction S (of prohibition to less than 12 years to prohibition with less than 18 years according to the countries). Typical of the Years 1970, it celebrates the Liberté, the Nature and spontaneousness all while being opposed by the Humor to the Militarisme and the social Convention S. The preferred pastime of the main character, Harold, being to attend the burials and to walk in the cemeteries, the term Harolding , founded on the neologism to harold was invented by the amateurs of film having decided to adopt this distraction. The term of Maudianism was also forged to indicate the “Philosophie of life” of the other character-title, Maude.
