5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Christmas Eve Viewing For All Ages!, 4 Dec 2001
This review is from: The Snowman/Father Christmas [DVD] (DVD)
I have watched this spectacular wordless animation every Christmas now since it first came out in the early 1980s when I was just a child and I can honestly say that Christmas just wouldn't be the same for me without it.
I have now passed it's splendor on to my own 3 year old daughter who was touched to tears the first time she watched it.
The soundtrack is very emotional so make sure you have your tissues at the ready.
I just love the sketchy, story book style of the animation that makes you feel like you are reading a story book that has come to life.
As the film is wordless, it is also ideal for people of all nationalities.
The underlying message seems to be advising us to value loved ones because life is short and it is a perfect message to put across during the season of good will.
The DVD also features another Raymond Briggs classic, 'Father Christmas' containing dialogue and showing a more humorous side to the life of Santa Claus.
There are no bonus features on the DVD, which is a shame but it still deserves 5 stars because both of the films are brilliant!
