Noel is a drama film, with moments of comedy. It tells the story of 6 interconnected individuals (a plot device which seems to be increasingly common, as seen in Crash) who are brought into and out of each others lives one Christmas eve in a series of completely random but fairly convincing scenarios. It's a very touching film with plenty of emotional moments- yes, you will cry! There are some truly beautiful and haunting moments that really have stayed with me all day today. But there are also some humourous moments! Some of them I'm not even really sure exactly what they meant, but that adds to the magic of this film. Add to the excellent plot the fact that Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz and Paul Walker all put in excellent performanes and are all highly watchable, the fact that the film simply LOOKS wonderful and features a fantastic soundtrack, and you see why I liked this film so mnuch!
All in all a wonderful seasonal film.
Set in New York on Christmas Eve, Noel follows a disparate group of lonely souls, whose lives will eventually intersect. Susan Sarandon is a middle-aged workaholic book editor, a man-shy divorcée who desperately tries to communicate with her mother who is in the final stages of Alzheimer's. Gorgeous office worker Nina (Penélope Cruz) and her strapping, hunky taxi driver fiancé, Mike (Paul Walker), are madly in love, but Mike's jealousy – he breaks out into fits of rage when another man even looks at her - threatens to derail their relationship.
Alan Arkin is a diner employee who in turn is convinced that his late wife's spirit has entered Mike's body - his first encounter with Mike where he offers him some butter cookies is one of the best scenes in the film. In the most thankless role, Marcus Thomas is a young man whose childhood was so brutal that the only happy Christmas he ever had was when family violence sent him to a hospital.
The various stories swirl together, some drifting into the realm of the supernatural and others into the more prosaically therapeutic. But Mr. Palminteri's direction is often choppy, giving no spin or shape to the complex structure.Read more ›
The film its self was nothing spectacular, but had a nice Christmassy feel about it, not too sweet and I liked the fact that the main character knew that her Christmas was going to be spent at the hospital as usual with her Mother, who had Alzheimers.
It was the case of a woman, who basically was at the end of her tether, and who was 'rescued' from herself, by an 'Angel' in the form of a dying patient, but you dont discover this until towards the end of the film. Its nice in the fact, that she discovers that there is some hope for her personal life, as the film comes to a close..
Watch out for those tears,keep your tissues ready,but you will come away smiling. Definately one to bring out every December,or any time you need to be reminded of the goodness in people.
One of the children said "Imagine if we'd watched this on Christmas Eve?!?!?! How depressed would we all be when we went to bed?!?!?" I had to agree.
This might be enjoyable to some, but it's not for family viewing - at least not if you want to enjoy yourselves, have a laugh or be imbued with Christmas magic. Great acting, but a bad script.
