On April 8, 2000, aspiring artist Mark Hogancamp (Steve Carell) became a victim of a violent assault when five men beat him up and left him for dead. Following the attack, Mark was left with little to no memory of his previous life due to brain damage inflicted by his attackers. In a desperate attempt to regain his memories, Hogancamp constructs a miniature World War II village called Marwen in his yard to help in his recovery. Unfortunately, Mark's demons come back to haunt him when he's asked to testify against the five men that attacked him..
When Mark lifts up the Time Machine and turns it on, you can hear the sound of the flux capacitor from the DeLorean of the "Back to the Future" trilogy. See more »
In many close shots on Mark Hogancamp's hands the hands are not those of Steve Carell. See more »
I like to wear heels sometimes. I don't know why but they somehow connect me to the essence of dames. Does it bother you?
It doesn't bother me in the least.
Good. I - love - dames.

Deeper then a miniature movie
One of the things that drawn me to the movie is the use of miniatures like model railroads and dioramas. The movie is a lot more, it is heavy watching the main character go through his hell. If your expecting a fun filled movie, it is sometimes but expect it to go way down and deep. The transition between the 2 worlds is flawless.
