For ones who know about Iran's social and political situation It's very easy to understand the great comedy of this story and be familiar with the jokes and get the concept. In fact many people doesn't have any clear idea about Iran and it's very important that we have some information about Iran before watching the movie. so this is all about it:

  • We have a very dogmatic government that controls everything, exactly through a movie. There's no movie that has not at least 2 censored parts. The whole concept of Maxx is criticizing the political-cultural relations in Iran and not only criticizing, but also LAUGHING at them


  • Maxx was filmed during the last years of President Khatami's period. We had a liberal atmosphere that never happen again. This is an important factor because without that little democracy not even Maxx, many films could not be produced.


  • Maxx has very powerful scenario that put a deep challenge through the government and also Iranian nation, with an extra-ordinary jokes and comedy situation. It reaches to a level that we don't have in Iranian movies, some slap-stick, some verbal jokes, and also great visual jokes. For foreigners it may reminds "Naked Gun"s or "Hot Shots"s... but it's totally different.


  • In my opinion, Maxx is a caricature from Iran. Even we don't have that much freedom like those days, but it reminds me about some little chances, some happiness, some hope... that doesn't exist today.


I recommend you to see this DVD.
