Marcel The Shell With Shoes On
Kids Tickets Only £2.50 Marcel offers 90 minutes of poignant whimsy, all of it inducing genuine laughter and tears. If it doesn’t move you, then perhaps nothing will.
His intended triumphal visit, arranged by the mayor to mark the centenary of the local House of Culture, turns into something approaching a nightmare as he confronts the horrors of his childhood: the classmates who mocked him at school; the teacher who scored him with a ‘Fail’ and the chaos of his own family.
This irresistible black comedy, with vivid imagery and strong performances, is the first feature from its director, herself a prominent fashion designer.
