Rating Summary
Marcel The Shell With Shoes On is a surprisingly touching independent film with some humor and a touch of poignancy. However, its pervasive melancholy and deliberate pace, not to mention an instance of shockingly inappropriate humor, make it a questionable choice for children. Yet, its novelty also wears a bit thin for mature audiences, especially for its overlong second act.
