Marionette is a 2020 psychological thriller directed by Elbert van Strien and starring Thekla Reuten, Elijah Wolf, and Emun Elliott. The film tells the story of child psychiatrist Marianne (Thekla Reuten), who starts to suspect that one of her patients, a young boy named Manny (Elijah Wolf), might be a reincarnation of her own dead son. As Marianne becomes increasingly obsessed with the boy, she begins to lose touch with reality and starts to question her own sanity.

The film begins with Marianne working with Manny, a troubled boy who shows signs of severe trauma. Although Manny is uncommunicative and has difficulty expressing his thoughts and feelings, Marianne becomes convinced that he is connected to her dead son, who died years ago in a drowning accident. As Marianne delves deeper into Manny's psyche, she starts to uncover strange and unsettling clues that suggest a paranormal connection between the two boys.

As the two become more enmeshed, Marianne's personal life starts to unravel. Her husband (Emun Elliott), who is also her colleague at the psychiatric clinic, becomes increasingly concerned about her erratic behavior and begins to worry about her mental health. Despite his attempts to intervene, Marianne becomes more and more consumed by her belief that Manny is her son, and she starts to take increasingly drastic measures to try to prove it.

Throughout the film, Marianne also grapples with the guilt and grief associated with her own son's death. She becomes increasingly convinced that Manny could be the key to solving the mystery of what really happened to her son, and she pours all of her energy into unraveling the truth.

As the tension rises, the film becomes a harrowing psychological thriller, rife with twists and turns that keep the audience guessing until the final moments. The performances are all outstanding, and Thekla Reuten in particular delivers a powerful and moving portrayal of a woman on the brink of madness.

Overall, Marionette is an intense and gripping film that explores themes of grief, obsession, and identity. It is a haunting and thought-provoking meditation on the fragility of the human mind, and it will leave audiences reeling long after the credits have rolled.

Marionette is a 2021 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 52 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.9 and a MetaScore of 47.
