Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family.

    What a charming little film.

    For a film about a shell it felt incredibly human! It was very relatable to the human experience, it even made me shed a tear. This movie just had no business being this good. It was darling! Just a very sweet lighthearted funny film that touch the soul in a different way! This movie accomplished something emotionally that most "human" movies fail to do! I'm speaking about humans like I'm an alien in this review... I am also a person.

    Great stuff. Great look. Great vibes. Great sound.

    No yeah really the soundtrack was actually very good! Super good score for some reason.

    I watched Marcel with my granddaughters and now every time they come over we watch it together. They are 12 and 14 and always on their devices but when we watch Marcel, no one talks. We simply enjoy everything that comes out of Marcel's mouth and the feelings that come with his story. They love Nana Connie. They even started calling me by her name. My husband, on the other hand, does not understand the attraction. He thinks it is silly which we have repeatedly tried to explain and convince him otherwise. He will watch it for 5 minutes max before he shakes his head and leaves the room. The three of us just want him to feel what we feel. His loss. The memories are precious to me. Thanks so much Dean.
