Marcel, the Shell with shoes on, Dean Fleischer-Camp

With Jenny Slate, Dean Fleischer-Camp, Isabella Rossellini



Marcel is an adorable seashell who lives alone with his grandmother, since separating from the rest of their community.

When a documentary filmmaker discovers them in his Airbnb, the video he posts online goes viral.


Why is Marcel one of the 3 best films of the year?

A short film that went viral on YouTube (with over 20 million views, even though it was made for close friends and family), Marcel the Shell with his shoes on has become an original feature-length film, thanks to its characters, its narrative and the technical means used to make it. 


What if you could talk to the characters you invented, and they would materialize before your very eyes?

That’s what’s happening with Marcel, the shell born from the voice of Jenny Slate and designed by director Dean Flasher-Camp.

In addition to his cute voice, Marcel makes us laugh and moves us, as he evolves in a real world and makes lucid, acerbic remarks about our times.
Marcel takes us back to the fundamentals of our existence: belonging to a community, loving and being loved, and how to survive alone in such a difficult world. The director has added some funny situations, with secondary characters both fictional and real.

This humor also reminds us of certain moments seen in Woody Allens best films (such as when he addresses the camera in Annie Hall). 

Jenny Slate evokes the Olympic task of playing his voice and finding the right intonations at the right moments. 

Isabella Rossellini, who did the voice of Marcel’s grandmother, immersed totally herself into Marcel ‘s world.

Written as a documentary, that is, in a very free way, the improvisation in the writing brings authenticity and sincerity that’s very close to us.  Marcel is small, fragile and is fighting to exist, and in the end it’s a very human situation that we’re all familiar with.


A technical performance

On the technical side, in addition to the thousands of hours of recorded voices, the storyboard (which took three years) included one frame per shot, and 10s of film were shot per day.

The best hours of exposure were filmed and then used to insert Marcel and the other characters according to the moment in the story.


If you’re only going to see one film this week, it has to be Marcel!

Silo, created and directe by Graham Yost, directed by Morten Tyldum



In a toxic dystopian future where a community of 10,000 lives in a giant 144-story silo underground, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them.




Adapted from the eponymous trilogy by American novelist Hugh Howey, Silo starts from a credible presupposition: that we can no longer live in the open air because of the environment. 

A myth is built around Silo. The elders built it for the good of all, and dictatorial rules govern the lives of its inhabitants.

But the machine jams.

People are dying in strange circumstances. And soon Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson, actress and series producer), an expert in repairs (including the main turbine), becomes sheriff alongside Becker (David Oyelowo).

At stake: the relics, vestiges of the ancient world that would jeopardize the history and legitimacy of this way of life where the sole objective is power. 

Thrilling, terrifying and highly realistic, Rebecca Ferguson is also a major contributor to the quality of this series.

She is surrounded by David Oyelowo, Tim Robbins (whom we don’t see often enough…), Harriet Walter (The Last duel…), Geraldine James, Common, Iain Glen, Avi Nash (The Walking Dead), Rashida Jones (On the rocks)…


Series finale June 30. 

10 episodes. Currently on AppleTV and Canal +




Razzia sur l’Atlantique, Nicolas Van Ingen



The waters of West Africa have long been among the richest on the planet.

But since the 1970s, fishing fleets from Europe, Russia and Asia have been scouring this part of the Atlantic Ocean, often illegally. This competition from foreign trawlers is terrible for local artisanal fishermen. 

Faced with collapsing fish stocks, they and their families are often faced with a terrible dilemma: “Barça or barsack” (Barcelona or death).

But some Senegalese are fighting back. Karim Sall, a fishermen’s trade unionist, and Diaba Diop, union leader for women fish processors, are fighting tirelessly to make the voice of the sea’s artisans heard by the Senegalese government and international bodies.


The history of a country

In Senegal, fishing provided a livelihood for many indirect trades. With the desertification of the land, many people turned to this sector to get by, as it provided food and employment.

Today, a number of pirogues are for sale.

Why is this?

It all began in the 1970s, when Senegal signed agreements with the European Community. The content of these agreements was never made public, and allowed foreign vessels to establish themselves in the Senegalese maritime zone.

Today, industrial vessels fish in a week what used to take a year.

Despite the suspension of fishing agreements in 2012, a legal loophole has allowed foreign vessels to operate under the Senegalese flag, often with the complicity of the state.

Chinese and other factory ships continue to plunder the oceans, taking advantage of these countries’ limited surveillance capacities.

For the country, we’re talking about the equivalent of 230 million euros in annual losses.

Both an economic and an ecological disaster, Chinese trawlers continue to work (despite being recognized as environmentally destructive) despite the fact that no fishing agreement has been signed between the two countries.


Indirect effects

The women who used to smoke the fish are forced to work in fishmeal factories.

Senegalese subsidies are used to make fishmeal that feeds Europeans. The labor force is in short supply, as people risk their lives to come to Europe.

And the Atlantic today is a graveyard and the greatest human catastrophe of our time.


This thorough, terrifying and relevant documentary is currently on LCP.
