Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) gets assaulted by a group of Nazi thugs which left him extremely physically and emotionally damaged. In order to work through his trauma, he finds comfort and support from both his physical therapy and his natural inclination to art and expression. He builds a miniature world and creates stories of heroism which then gives him the courage and confidence to face his attackers and bring them to justice. Directed by Robert Zemeckis.~Phil Griffin
Saw preview and thought going to be dumb movie. Ended up getting trapped watching and so happy it worked out that way. I don't ever write reviews but I feel I have to. Watch this movie and I promise you'll love it. It won't be best movie you've ever seen but you will thouroly enjoy it from be beginning to end. Simply a great movie that was wrongly reviewed and totally under watched. As far as comparison to other moves that were under watched and wrongly reviewed my humble opinion the Usaul Suspects comes to mind. Again watch it you'll thank me later.
First off I like this movie a lot. It had a great story line but I feel The FULL story was not fleshed out as much as it could have been. If they had explored more of the back story it would have been a better movie. Felt they spent a little bit more on the CGI aspects than the full storyline. Thy being said I did enjoy this and recommend it
Going into this movie I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew it was a movie about a man with PTSD like issues being helped by friends along the way. What I loved about the movie was how they built the animation scenes around the story as well as how they built the story itself. It was a really touching film worth watching.
Welcome to Marwen is excellent. The true story of this man is incredible and how he created Marwencol, this little village in Belgium. All of the dolls and the characters that were there, along with the miniature city he built is just amazing. The dolls represent people in his life and events that occurred. His photography is amazing and this along with the dolls, Marwencol are his therapy in dealing with what happened to him. Beautiful movie and true story.
A very different role for Steve Carell. The movie starts you in the middle and I was not sure I was going to like it even 1/3 the way through. My advice is to keep watching to the end. I am guessing that a lot of people will love this movie and others will hate it.
