Our next Rialto Recommends takes us to a WWI battlefield on Christmas Eve in 1914. Released in 2005 JOYEUX NOEL (MERRY CHRISTMAS) stars Diane Kruger, Benno Furmann, Guillaume Canet and Gary Lewis Against all odds, four unlikely individuals from opposing sides bond during this bloodless respite to experience the hope and goodness in humanity. The Los Angeles Times said "The movie deftly and subtly limns the precarious line between basic human goodwill and institutionalized hatred." While the Toronto Star said "A beautifully lensed and acted European co-production that blends historical fact with sentimental drama to forge a powerful anti-war statement." JOYEUX NOEL is streaming on the Roku Channel and Crackle or available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, Apple, GooglePlay, YouTube and DirectTV. Not all the critics were kind to the sentimentality of JOYEUX NOEL but we think you may like this film.
