Movie Reviews

Superb Christmas story!
Manfred Von Richthofen | Texas, USA | 10/05/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is also one of my favorite Christmas movies of all time.

A German mother takes her son to the winter cabin to escape the violence of the Battle of the Bulge. A small group of Americans find their way to the cabin with a wounded soldier and are forced to leave their weapons outside. When Nazis arrive they believe an axe is a rifle and surrender to it. They also leave their weapons outside and all sit to a Christmas dinner no one had planned! Even enemies can become friends.

This is a perfect Family film, a great addition to any war collection, and a perfect addition to a Christmas collection.

If you liked this full length film, another film short you will enjoy is My Christmas Soldier."
I just love this movie....

"I saw this movie on TV a long time ago and I always wanted to see it again. I found it at Amazon and bought it and I find it to be an instant 'classic'. The performances are real and the story unique yet believeable. Its a shame that a great movie like this doesn't get more attention. I thought there were two scenes in the movie that I didn't see on the DVD. I could be wrong, but maybe there is a unedited version out there somewhere? One scene I remember is where one German and one American soldier are outside talking about their lives before the war. And I thought at the end of the movie there was a follow up of what happened to each individual after the war. I may be crazy but I thought these two scenes were in the movie, but are not. Enjoy!"
A Terrific Movie

"I saw this several years ago and liked it but forgot about it. I had the good fortune to catch it this past December on the Hallmark channel and just had to purchase it. The acting is very good and believeable and the story? Well let's just say it's one for the ages. My wife loved it and I know the rest of my family will also. It's amazing that a good, quality movie such as this does not get the recognition it deserves."
