5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Magic, 13 Dec 2006
This review is from: The Snowman/Father Christmas [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
This is a great combination to have on one DVD. The Snowman is such a wonderful wordless classic with its sweeping score, timeless song and lovely humour. The animation is just gorgeous and it never fails to draw a tear in our house when the snowman melts at the end :(( But it is thoroughly enjoyed by everyone nonetheless.

Father Christmas is "bloomin' great fun." The appealing grumpiness of the man of the season himself going on holidays to France, Las Vegas & Scotland, together with his hatred of getting cold, make this a wonderful, funny and highly entertaining film. He does of course return home in time to read all those Christmas letters ("how'm I supposed to get a pony down the chimney then??") and to pack his sleigh ready for his annual present delivery round the world.

It is a great pairing with The Snowman, and includes some scenes that link the two storylines together - really very nicely done. Father Christmas is just what you need to dry those tears after the ending of the Snowman and leaves you (and our five year old!) singing along with him at the end, wishing everyone "a merry bloomin' Christmas." I commend this lovely seasonal duo to your family pleasure.
