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.

Easy-going, technically interesting watch - Welcome to Marwen review by Alphaville

Having lost all his memory after a vicious attack, Mark (Steve Carell) spends his days staging and photographing Second World War scenarios with dolls and action figures. It’s based on a true story and the real Mark still exhibits in galleries. He is the hero of the scenarios and the fantasy village he lives in (Marwen) is populated by dolls representing the real women who look out for him.

Expanding on the photographs, the film brings the action figures to life with animated action scenes based on motion capture of the real-life actors acting out the scene. Renowned director Robert Zemeckis is brilliant at this kind of thing. To ensure that the expressions of the dolls and action figures are more realistic than ever, he has even pioneered a step forward in motion capture. The eyes and mouths of the real-life actors are retained on the animated dolls. Watch the DVD extras and be impressed.

Given this, it a tad disappointing that the two-hour film ambles along without any highpoints, but it remains a gentle, easy-going, well-meaning piece that’s worth catching.
