Actually, no one has heard of this movie before. Overlooked for 32 years, The Noah is the first and only film by director Daniel Bourla. And that's a darn shame.
The movie plays like a great Twilight Zone episode. Remember the episode where the bookworm wishes he were the last person on earth, so he can read all the books to his hearts content without distractions? Of course, he gets his wish. And just when he begins his book reading marathon, his eyeglasses break.
The Noah is similar, in an inverted way. After years of service in the military, The Noah (played by Robert Strauss), planned to spend his remaining years on his pension somewhere peaceful, quiet... where he could relax. Maybe a nice beach side property off the coast of Florida.
Instead, a nuclear holocaust. The Noah is swept to an exotic coast in South East Asia and is the last man on earth.
At first, The Noah almost enjoys his solitude. But quickly loneliness sets in. To cope, The Noah creates a trumpet playing Army Private named Friday. Friday inevitably becomes lonely. In good faith, The Noah creates a girlfriend for Friday whom he calls Friday Anne.
Three is a crowd when The Noah and Friday Anne don't see eye to eye. From here on out nothing holds The Noah back until he's created a school... a town... a civilization.
Watch The Noah for the interesting story, wonderful performance, interesting cinematography, and directing. You will think about it for days and days...
