Oddly touching; Ultimately sweet!
16 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who would've thought that a tiny little shell could find it's way into our hearts by guiding us through his every day life? Well, apparently the mega-gifted Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer- Camp did. Jenny Slate, who is maybe best known for her involvement in SNL, also does the voice.

In creating this uber simple (in concept, not in retrospect that stop motion is never easy) 4 minute video, they attempt to fit in some marvelously witty jokes on top of creating a character we'll surely know and love for a long, long time

I'm happy to know Marcel the Shell and I'm more than thrilled to keep sharing this film with all my friends.
