Diane Discusses “Welcome to Marwen” and Hollywood’s Endless Nazi Movies

Diane sat down with Vulture to discuss her latest film, Welcome to Marwen. During the conversation with Vulture, Diane discussed her favourite villains, being tired of being offered Nazi movies and the only joke she tells at parties, and how her bunnies punished her Barbie dolls.

I imagine life has to be interesting for a contemporary German actor when there is never a shortage of American movies about Nazis.
[Long sigh] I’ve been offered so many Nazi roles. You couldn’t believe. And I’ve never really wanted to do it. I’ll only do it if it’s more obtuse. Like with Marwen. Same with Inglourious Basterds. I never had any desire to be in that kind of movie to be honest, for obvious reasons, and I feel like it’s been done to death. How many movies do we need to see about that? That’s just my opinion. But watch, next year I’ll be in more Nazi movies, I’m sure.

Yes, dredging up a painful national history for work. There will likely be more movies about WWII and Nazis in the future, considering what’s happening here in the States. I think we’re sometimes afraid to make movies about contemporary Nazis because we don’t have a clear lens for interpreting them yet. And we’d have to own them as our own. Welcome to Marwen does that, though.
There have already been so many great movies done about that time in the past, though. What more do we need to say about that time?

“Welcome to Marwen” Critics Reviews

Diane’s latest film, Welcome to Marwen hits theatres tomorrow, December 21st. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, Welcome to Marwen follows the true story of Mark Hogancamp, a man struggling with PTSD who, after having his memory erased from being physically assaulted, creates a fictional village to ease his trauma. The film stars Steve Carell, Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monáe and Gwendoline Christie. Take a look below at what the critic’s early reviews are saying about the project:

Empire Online – A genuine oddity, Welcome To Marwen may not hit the emotional highs but mixes high-concept fun with a sincere attempt to describe trauma in an original visceral way. And [Robert] Zemeckis’ filmmaking remains exemplary. It doesn’t completely work, but it’s a studio picture that swings for the fences. And in this day and age, that is to be applauded.

Rolling Stone – Everything is over-scaled for the wow factor, and while i’ts easy to admire the handiwork of [Robert] Zemeckis and his tech crew, they seem to be admiring it, too — while losing track of the story’s humane core in the process. Welcome to Marwen isn’t hack work; there are ideas buried beneath its high-gloss surface and relentless uplift. But good luck trying to dig them out.

The Globe and MailWelcome to Marwen is the ultimate Robert Zemeckis movie. This is not intended as a compliment. The film – not quite comedy, not quite drama, but definitely indigestible – finds Zemeckis embracing his worst late-career indulgences.

IndieWire – In trying to celebrate the healing powers of art, Zemeckis has created a sometimes fun, often morbidly compelling, and always ill-advised testament to the ways in which those healing powers can create problems of their own. For all of its CGI wizardry, the drama of Welcome to Marwen winds up feeling as artificially manufactured as the miniature figurines who bring it to life.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus are the proud parents of a baby girl.

While promoting her new drama Welcome to Marwen, the German-American actress, 42, opened up to Extra about the couple’s new addition, saying, “She’s very little, but I’m tired. I feel like a superhero right now.”

“Welcome to Marwen” Official Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming film, Welcome to Marwen has been released. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film is based on Jeff Malmberg’s award-winning 2010 documentary Marwencol, and sees Carell playing the real-life Mark Hogancamp, who was beaten into a coma by five men and spent 40 days in the hospital.

After the attack left him with brain damage and PTSD, Hogancamp immersed himself in an intricate world of World War II-era miniatures as a form of art therapy. In the trailer, Zemeckis mashes both worlds together – Hogancamp’s fictional, tiny town of Marwen and his actual reality – to wondrously trippy effect. Welcome to Marwen also stars Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monáe, Eiza González, and Gwendolyn Christie, and hits theaters on October 12th.
