Hugely enjoyable, off-beat,imaginative, original, moving film, with CGI used so well. Loved it!
- Welcome to Marwen review by PV
I had no idea what to expect with this movie, but as it started and CGI dawned, I was gripped. It's just SO original, and for once, CGI is used well and with flair - unlike the usual CGI overload of many Hollywood movies.
What is even more remarkable is that it's based on a true story.
It's hard to describe this film - and I usually don't like fantasies though this movie takes place in 2 worlds, in effect.
But just great. Sure., it gets a little twee towards the end as most US movies do BUT even that is not overdone and does not ruin the movie.
I would have loved to have seen a bit more of the funny Russian carer...but these are minor quibbles.
This is the best Hollywood movie I have seen for ages. I won't be watching Aladdin or any Marvel Comic/Avengers mainstream tripe.
If you like your films a little off-beat and quirky, then this is for you.
I shall probably watch it again in 6 months or so - it's that sort of film. Memorable. Original. Classic, even.
