_Marcel the Shell with Shoes On_ is the type of film that reminds you what it’s like to be a decent human being through the perspective of a little talking shell that walks on the walls of a normal sized house by stepping in a puddle of honey. The film is laugh out loud funny, sad in a gut punching kind of way, and overwhelmingly big-hearted. _Marcel the Shell with Shoes On_ is a heartwarming delight. **Full review:**

Huge heart in this film. It's funny, philosophical, life affirming and just a pure pleasure to watch. The fact that it's stop motion animation makes it a complete wonder. How?

MORE SPOILER-FREE REVIEWS @ "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On transported me back to the precious times I shared with my late grandfather. An extraordinarily creative, moving story surrounded by incredibly genuine humor and filled with meaningful, memorable messages about family, friendship, life, and love. Complex themes dissected through the fascinatingly simplistic eye of a small shell. Efficiently short runtime to take the viewers through a contemplative yet quite spirited experience. One of my favorite films of the year, do NOT miss it!" Rating: A-

If this doesn't appeal to the inner kid in you, I don't know what will. It's all about the charmingly orange-toed mollusc "Marcel" who is now living with human "Dean" and his grandmother "Connie" (who even has a titchy zimmer-frame) in an house that was previously occupied by a couple. Now it transpires that this pair had a fairly lively relationship and when things started to get a bit hairy, he and his extended family at the time would seek safety in the sock drawer. After one such altercation, though, the contents of that drawer were unceremoniously emptied into a bag leaving "Marcel" in his current, rather lonely, predicament. Every evening he and his granny watch "Sixty Minutes" and it occurs to them that presenter Lesley Stahl might just be able to help the family reunite. What follows now is a thoroughly enjoyable, characterful and engaging little drama that sees "Marcel" - quite a shrewd and quick-witted fella - and "Dean" set about turning his circumstances into a matter of international significance. Question is - well, will it pay off? Of course there is no jeopardy, it's just a fun story - tinged with a touch of tragedy, that elicits feelings of longing, family, loneliness sure, but also of family, optimism and all set in an environment that is ideal for wandering around the walls after you've stuck your tiny feet in honey. I really did enjoy this.

**By: Louisa Moore /** With strong themes of friendship, family, and always doing what’s right, there’s so much to love about the poignant and sweet animated mockumentary, “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On.” Everything about this film is simply delightful, from its simple stop-motion animation to terrific voice performances from Jenny Slate and Isabella Rossellini. Based on the hit YouTube film series from the 2010s, the film tells the story of the tiny shell Marcel (voice of Slate) and the day-to-day life that he leads with his grandmother, Nana Connie (voice of Rossellini). The pair live in a house in the suburbs that, after the couple who used to reside there had a very nasty breakup, is now being rented out as an Airbnb. When human documentary filmmaker Dean (Dean Fleischer-Camp) rents the place, he befriends Marcel, learning that his entire shell family disappeared two years ago. Armed with a camera, Dean decides to help his new pal find his lost clan, shooting a documentary about their epic quest. It’s a simple story told in an elemental style, but director Fleischer-Camp has created a world of pure joy. Marcel is as cute as they come, a sweet, positive little guy with the sunniest of dispositions. He travels around in a tennis ball, climbs the walls by smearing honey on his feet, uses toenail clippings for skis, and has a “pet” ball of lint. It’s the little things that are so inventive and clever, so be sure to pay attention to the small details. It’s a lot like the scenes where Marcel gets carsick when he rides on Dean’s dashboard: there’s something irresistible about seeing the world through a shell’s eyes, and it becomes an effortless endeavor to find an appreciation for everything in your own surroundings, too. While this sounds like a movie that’s great for kids, it’s probably better for older tweens (and up). It’s a film that’s more pensive than colorful or action-packed, and there are moments that talk openly and frankly about grief, fear, and death. With the help of Nana Connie, Marcel gains the courage to take risks that are scary but important, and he gains a ton of confidence along the way. The story also has a timely life lesson about the world of social media, and Marcel is given a heavy dose of reality when he learns that many of his online “fans” want to exploit him rather than actually help him find his family. Just ten minutes into the movie, I was concerned that the eccentricity would wear thin quickly, but it does not. Fleischer-Camp, Slate and Nick Paley’s screenplay is so wise and tender and emotionally touching that even when the story ended, I wanted more. I cannot say enough positive things about this entire project because there are no missteps here. That’s why “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On” is one of my favorite films of the year.
