Storyline

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..

Playing With Pain
24 December 2018 | by excalibur107See all my reviews

I'm not even going to try to explain what it's about maybe because I'm not sure of it myself. Pain plays a central part in this Zemeckian experiment. And Zemeckis has taken me to the most unexpected worlds through imaginative and sometimes downright revolutionary visual feasts. Just think Return To The Future or Forrest Gump. Here we're not allowed to get close to our hero. Everything seems to be detached emotionally and every attempt to get closer is translated into sentimentality. It just doesn't quite work. My favorite of all Zemeckias films is, without question, Death Becomes Her the one of his films that gets better and better with the passing of time. Special effects age but not if they are intimately connected to the progress of the story and are based on multidimensional characters, Death Becomes Her is a perfect example of that. Welcome to Marwen is an interesting experiment but unfortunately it stands cold and distant.
