Many fans of the movie name of English Director and screenwriter Richard Elson nothing I will say, even though he had the opportunity to get a coveted "Oscar", when in 1993 it was nominated in the category "Best short documentary" (tape "Colours of my father: a Portrait of Sam Borenstein", but in the official filmography of Elson she ignored — or disconnect or error). So if this filmmaker festive romance family type "Christmas star" became the first feature-length film. Same newcomer (or a debutante, not know for sure) turned out to be and writer"... stars" Myra Campbell. And here on earth with what the reason to watch this film, if it out in the 2015th year, but still then the CP is not collected the required number of votes for medium points, and IMDb number of voters not reach check 300 people? The answer is simple: sometimes you want something good and good.

The plot of "the Christmas star" revolves around a cute and charming girls Noel O'hanlon, who was born exactly in the eve of was miraculously endowed with the gift of magic any scandals and quarrels immediately complete and turn in quarreling best friends. Noel lives with his parents, Mary and Joe a small town that exists for by which sell special Christmas balls that are created with the aim to replace the traditional socks, where to invest gifts for toddlers, who believe that it makes Santa Claus. But demand balls began to fall sharply and it appears tenacious businessman Pat Mackerron, who once lived in the town of Noel, with my son. Mackerron wants to buy land from the local population, telling what is there will be created conditions for the town the money came from. In this plan believed a major financial figure, Mr. shepherd. But actually greedy and arrogant Mackerron pursue their own sly objectives.

Here's a twist in the plot, which in its simplicity may seem appealing, as a special intellectual activity movies in the Christmas eve at the traditions require. However, the quality of the film was very very sad. With first glance catches that "Christmas star" was experiencing financial difficulties, then there is a lack of budget, why with a technical standpoint, the picture looks naive and fresh. Even fantasy tab, when Noel uses his gift, so cheap, that, alas, further viewing of the film depressing. Very bad job done by the operators of the tape Richard bell and Ian Fox. And only in some places rescues music from Marita McBride and the Eagles O'rourke, but to call this music some memorable impossible, she only harmonizes well with the plot of the "Christmas star", a binding component for such films the role easy way touching.

It is not necessary to pay special attention to that in the cast has the names of Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson: with Brosnan, all the scene can be easily removed for only one day (not surprised that and ), and with Neeson's work may have stretched a little more, because he's also one scene with his appearance still engaged in the voice text for the frame. Glimpse, by the way, in the cameo Kylie Minogue — it's kind of like one call is made the inhabitants of the town, so to speak, to spread my wings. Who played Noel young Erin Galway.-Kendrick girl, of course, beautiful, but "Christmas star" is clearly not the film, where it can show itself in all colors. Not bad, but still pretty flat and the standard role played by Rob James-Collier (senior Mackerron). Typical roles were noted and Bron In Richard Clements (parents Noel). And is in the movie the kid is a cripple, which it was really a pity, because his disability is not was on-screen.

Absolutely simple and standard film, which is not stands out among other holiday films. "Christmas star" with struggling to cope with the task to make the audience believe in wonders the eve of a magical day. Mediocrity — here, most likely, which ones-the only word you can designate the movie. Just because of the fact that he good dear I will paint a review in the red color, but to the green film is far, very very far away as the town which was born and lived Noel.
