Critic Reviews for Noodle
Here, the background of grief helps: it deepens the characterisation, so that the emotion feels earned. Yet there is sentimentality here, leavened by Menahemi's understated humour and sense of purpose.
By the time the film reaches its lump-in-the-throat conclusion, you'll be glad to have discovered this touching and universal story.
You don't want to examine the contrivances of plot too closely but all the strands come together in a tense and emotionally satisfying climax. This is a perfect film for audiences who want to avoid confronting cinema.
Audience Reviews for Noodle
One of the best films I've seen recently. Brilliant performances. Excellent music. A very moving story.
A surprisingly touching israeli family drama that would make custom officials check their luggage scanners twice. But it's Anat Waxman who steals the show with her acerbic wit.
Could have wrote it off as corny but I conceded and had a great time. Strereo chinese translation in both my ears (live translators, friends). Saw it at Cinemacity in Tel Aviv. Why do Israeli movies focus more often on women as protagonists? Refereshing coming from US movies.
