Marcel, a tiny snail with the voice of Jenny Slate, lives with Grandma Connie (Isabella Rossellini) in an Airbnb being leased by a filmmaker. The presence of a man with a camera in their lives opens up new, exciting opportunities for the characters. Marcel will soothe your anxieties.

Marcel is Elmo in a shell. A movie about hypersensitivity under a chitin coating.

Michał Oleszczyk

Tearjerker stop motion mockumentary. Contagious imagination and a subtle sense of humor serve serious issues: loneliness, old age, loss, the need for community.

Adriana Prodeus

We have a comic clash of characters and a bit of slapstick, but the humor comes primarily from the seriousness with which the titular Marcel treats himself and the attentiveness with which the creators observe.

Darek Arest, Dwutygodnik

Funny, profound, weird, sad, and gorgeously constructed — Marcel is a true original, liable to melt even the most cynical heart.

John Nugent, Empire Magazine
