The Spanish equivalent of "A Christmas Story"
Flora W. Hazelton | Jonesboro, GA USA | 12/16/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"A fast-talking, bespectacled 9-year-old deals with eccentric parents, a younger brother and bullies as the Christmas holiday season approaches. Sound familiar? Manolito Gafotas' story is set in Spain, but its humorous kids-eye-view of the holidays makes it a great family film.
An added bonus for multicultural audiences is that the family' Swedish guest promotes a December 25th, Santa oriented celebration, but Three Kings Day, the holiday traditionally honored in Spanish-speaking countries is also included. In between the two celebrations, Grandpa's New Year's Eve prank puts the whole town in an uproar.
The film is in Spanish with English subtitles."
