Independent Film-making at it's Finest
24 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to screen "Noelle", then Mrs. Worthington's Pary, at the "Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival". I was not sure what to expect from a movie written, directed and starring the same person. The first thing I noticed was the enormous amount of people that were coming into the screening. There must have been almost 600 people for the showing. From the start the Cinematography was purely outstanding. The film was shot on 35mm and was absolutely beautiful. The scenery was breathtaking, the music magical and mysterious, a true testament to great Independent Film making. The acting also greatly surprised me as the movie was comprised of all unknown actors. The performances were very strong all the way down to the beautiful ghostly child. The movie uses Priests as the main Characters and thoughtfully takes you through a true to life journey of problems and circumstances that any everyday man or woman could relate too. The wonderful writing and story gently and magically carry you through the movie like a journey back in time to the great Holiday Classics long gone. I found myself deeply involved in every Character and every aspect of the story, a credit to David Wall's writing and directing. I do not wish to give away any of the story, as that would be tasteless. I can tell you that if you are looking for a true Holiday movie, with a wonder inspiring story that is destined in my opinion to become a Holiday Classic, then you owe it to yourself to see this movie.

As the movie was ending, I looked over to my right to notice a man in his sixties gently wiping away tears from his eyes, just as I had done. The lights went up and to my surprise everyone was still there. As the music stopped, all 600 people stood almost in unison for a standing ovation. I had already been to six screenings with barely a round of applause at the ending of each. It seemed as if every single person got it and felt the same thing. This was a great movie. Last I could not help watching as a Catholic Priest made his way to David Wall in the lobby outside the theater. I was curious what he thought of the movie since the movie revolved around Priests. As I stood near, the Priest walked right up to him, grabbed his hand and arm, and said thank you with glossy eyes. I was amazed. Even the Priest loved the movie. The movie went on to win "Best Director" and a nod for "Best American Indie".

There are many things you could say about this movie, "Wonderful" is all that comes to mind.
