Storyline

A blind woman (Della Reese) who collects bells and never leaves the house suddenly finds herself alone when her mother dies. Then a neighbor 12 year old boy (Mason Gamble), who others term as slow, becomes her friend. Together they both make new discoveries, the main one being that the boy suffers from dyslexia - a condition that none of his teachers or parents have discovered. The boy aids the older woman in learning to use a walking cane, so she can become mobile and better take care of herself. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Amazing!
26 March 2004 | by LifeForRentSee all my reviews

I thought this movie, "Anya's Bell", was amazing. Absolutely brilliant.

I was looking through the channels on my Digital, and saw that on the Hallmark channel yesterday a movie called "Anya's Bell" was showing. I thought "This sounds okay" so I began to watch it. I must admit that at the start I sighed and thought "Not another TV Movie like this" but as it went on I found it great and really hooking. I think this was due to Della Reese's acting, and the character, Anya, that she plays. She done an excellent job and I doubt the movie would be so good if Della Reese weren't in it. At times I felt myself filling up just thinking about the complete situation- Especially when Anya started screaming on the Ferris Wheel or when she crosses the road- It was so touching and sad. I almost cried at the ending- But I'll leave you to watch it and find out.

10/10 for this movie, as I loved it so much. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone of any age.
