Review of “I Heard The Bells”.

The film is about the American poet Longfellow. According to the National Park Service, Longfellow was an aspiring, prolific writer and was prolifically written about during his lifetime. One of the most significant moments of his life was when his wife Fanny died of burns in 1861. As he mourned the loss of his wife, he turned to writing the words that became the anthem “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”

I loved this film from start to finish.

It’s a heartwarming story.

This new film explores how Longfellow navigates personal tragedy and the gravity of the Civil War. Longfellow’s personal journey illuminates his faith, his abolitionist writings, and how he navigates themes of family, unity, and experiencing joy through grief.

The film’s narrative depicts Longfellow as a complex character. He’s a complicated character in the film, but also a deeply likeable one. Family is an important part of the film, especially when Longfellow explains what his abolitionist work means to those who die in war.

His relationship with his wife is tender and audiences will appreciate the clean romance displayed in this film.

The production quality of the film is impressive, especially considering that this is the company’s first film. The image was crystal clear and the filmmakers managed to recreate the atmosphere Longfellow lived in.

The themes throughout the film were interesting, particularly the juxtaposition of hope and sadness. The film’s religious elements deserve praise.

This was a Christian film that didn’t exaggerate being a Christian film. Christianity was woven seamlessly through the plot and the viewer could appreciate the deepening of Longfellow’s conversion without feeling preached. I particularly enjoyed how Longfellow experienced a true darkness of the soul and then emerged hopeful from it.

Overall, this film is a great family Christmas film that has a positive message. You can’t miss that this season.
