Storyline

Christmas Eve in New York, and the lonely divorced publisher, Rose Collins, needs a miracle to improve the health of her mother, interned in a hospital with Alzheimers. She feels sorry for another patient and meets his visitor. Meanwhile, Nina Vasquez breaks her engagement with her beloved fiancé Mike due to his suffocating jealousy, but misses him. Mike is stalked by a stranger, bartender Artie Venzuela. The poor Jules arranges to spend Christmas Eve in the hospital, where he spent the best Christmas of his life when he was a teenager. The lives of some of these characters cross with others along the night. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When Rose meets her school friend before she goes to the hospital, she gets out of the inconvenient situation by stating that it was 7 o'clock and that she had to prepare a dinner for 35 people. The sun sets at about 4:30 PM in New York in December so it was impossible for it to be light (even twilight) outside. See more »

Quotes

Mike: Hi. Long time no see. Should I get the nurse?
Artie: No. What are you still doing here?
Mike: I was waiting for you to wake up.
Artie: Thanks so much for helping me out. I'm - I'm very, very grateful.
Mike: Your welcome. Artie, listen to me. I want you to know something. I forgive you.

No critics, just film lovers please!
7 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why try to be a film critic? I cannot understand why people can't just sit back and enjoy a very sweet film without picking out every imperfection. Noel is a movie with a lot of heart. Alan Arkin gives an excellent performance as well as Susan Sarandon. While others may not enjoy this movie because it depicts what the holidays are actually like for millions of people, I found it to represent the loss of connection we have all come to know to well. I think that the message is clear, that people need each other to live a life of substance. As individuals we are lost, but with friends, family and love we have hope. I hope the person that fell asleep watching this film did so next to a wife,husband or life partner and that they just didn't appreciate the film because they can't comprehend what it is like to be alone. I will watch this film every year with my family. It will remind us to be grateful for having each other. Thank you Chazz for taking the time to make this film.
