Marcel the Shell with Shoes On (2021)



Following the end of his marriage, documentary filmmaker Dean moves into an Airbnb and discovers Marcel, a one-inch-tall talking shell living in the home with his grandmother, Nana Connie, and Alan, his pet ball of lint.


After Dean uploads his first video about Marcel to YouTube, it quickly becomes a cultural phenomenon. Marcel is both flattered and overwhelmed with his newfound popularity, lamenting that his family is not around to celebrate it with him. Marcel explains to Dean that there used to be an entire community of shells on the property, including Marcel's mother, father, brother, and aunt. The shells would take shelter in a sock drawer when the house's previous owners, Mark and Larissa, started knocking objects over while fighting.


Following one fight, Mark accidentally packs the shells into his suitcase while moving out, leaving Marcel and Connie as the only ones left on the property. Dean helps Marcel produce a livestream on the internet asking for help in locating his family. The livestream gains a substantial number of viewers, but after Marcel shares his location with viewers, the house becomes a popular area for influencers. Marcel becomes dismayed after realizing most of the people who saw his videos are fans, desperate to be associated with him but largely uninterested in helping him.


60 Minutes calls Dean requesting additional filming after making new discoveries regarding the whereabouts of Larissa. The segment airs, showing that they were able to locate Larissa in Guatemala. Larissa then brings the 60 Minutes crew to Mark's house, where she and Mark get into an argument. Marcel urges Dean and the crew to check in Mark's sock drawer, where the entire shell community is discovered. They reunite in the Airbnb with Marcel, who is able to give Connie a proper funeral. Dean moves into his new apartment and begins dating again. Reunited with his family, Marcel confides to Dean that he often finds himself going to the Laundry Room window alone, and feeling the wind blow through his shell. Marcel shows Dean the sound it produces, remarking on its beauty as he stares out the window.


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. A beloved character gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners.

Parents need to know that Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is a sweet, poignant live-action/animated mockumentary based on the popular short films about a one-inch-tall anthropomorphic shell named Marcel (voiced by Jenny Slate) that gained popularity on YouTube in the early 2010s. The story follows Marcel's quest to find his long-lost family with the help of a human filmmaker. Characters deal with loss and express their grief; the shells face everyday perils like animals, heights, and feet; and Marcel packs weapons (a nail and a match) when heading out into the world. But overall this is a very mild, gentle film with strong messages about the importance of family, doing the right thing even when it's hard, and the transformative power of friendship. Language is limited to rare exclamations like "dang it" and "oh my God," there's a kissing reference, and a cork pops during a celebration. While the content is appropriate even for young elementary schoolers, the film's intentionally calm pace and focus on talk over action make it a better fit for tweens and up.


MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON tells the story of a tiny anthropomorphic shell named Marcel (voiced by Jenny Slate) who lives with his grandmother, Nana Connie (Isabella Rossellini), in a suburban house used as an Airbnb. It's been just the two of them since their large shell family mysteriously disappeared two years before. As Marcel gets to know documentary filmmaker Dean Fleischer-Camp, who's staying in the house while dealing with his own personal drama, the little shell inspires Fleischer-Camp to post videos to YouTube of Marcel going about his everyday life. A fandom is spawned, and eventually Marcel's story reaches the ears of those who might actually be able to help him figure out what happened to his family.


Sweet, poignant, and funny -- but also intentionally calm and thoughtful -- this movie about a tiny shell's unique perspective on life will have you looking at your own surroundings in new ways. Based on a popular series of YouTube videos from the early 2010s, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is a stop-motion labor of love that took more than six years for Slate and Fleischer-Camp to make. And while fans of the original videos will appreciate the callbacks to jokes about things like Marcel using toenails for skis, there's so much more in this longer version of Marcel's story. The care that clearly went into creating Marcel and his world is evident in every scene, from his tiny honey footprints on the walls (the honey helps him stick) to the elaborate systems he sets up to gather food and move around his house.


Marcel is an adorable and charming little shell (voiced by the ever-brilliant Jenny Slade) who ekes out a colourful existence with his grandmother Connie (Isabella Rossellini) 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 (Dean Fleischer-Camp) discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he makes brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new shot at finding his long-lost whānau.


We dare you NOT to love Marcel. It is just impossible not to fall at the Chaplin-esque feet of this incredibly sweet one-inch-tall seashell. The funnily naive Marcel is a creation that dates back to 2010, when comedian Jenny Slate and her friend-director Dean Fleischer Camp invented him out of sheer boredom at a wedding. They uploaded a three-minute short on Youtube, which was met with millions of heartwarming reactions. Now, more than a decade, two more shorts and a bestselling book later, Marcel stars in his own feature stop-motion mockumentary.


Voiced by Jenny Slate, Marcel lives with his grandmother Connie (a larger shell with life experience to die for and voiced by the great Isabella Rossellini) in an L.A. house, abandoned by a fighting couple who have converted it into an Airbnb. Marcel is an admirable optimist who tackles practical issues shell-first, climbing the walls by attaching honey to his shoes, making music with a piece of pasta or making his way around in a hollow tennis ball. Yet, beneath his friendly and smiley manners lies a big grief. He and Connie were once part of a larger community which went missing after the couple moved out. When a filmmaker (Dean Fleischer Camp himself) rents the Airbnb, he decides to make a documentary on the duo and their odd lives, helping them in the process of reaching out to possible community members.


Dean Fleischer Camp and Jenny Slate have succeeded in the most difficult of tasks: translating a couple of shorts into a feature film without compromising on any of the ingredients that turned Marcel into a viral sensation. Better even, the film cleverly comments on Marcel's fame and how it influences his life. With a perceptive eye for the minutiae and the poetics of daily live, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is a poignant animated therapy session for humans and shells alike. By the end of this 90-minute mollusc portrait, you will be cracking your voice when talking about shells. Whether he likes it or not: with Marcel, a star is born.


Slate reprises her role as Marcel, an inch-tall, talking seashell with shoes, living in a human house with his grandmother (Isabella Rossellini). With the aid of a human documentarian (Fleischer Camp), he sets out on a journey to find other talking shells like himself.


Marcel tells the story of the titular shell (voiced by Slate), an adorable one-inch-tall being who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie (Isabella Rossellini) and their pet lint, Alan.


As the title suggests, Marcel (voiced by Slate) is a shell with shoes who was left behind with his Aunt Connie (voiced by Isabella Rossellini) when his shell family left their home. With the help of a new tenant in the house ( Fleischer-Camp), Marcel goes searching for his family. 041b061a72
