Movie Reviews

Nice story, beautiful scenes, fairly factual
Bill Egan | Florida USA | 12/01/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I like the way they present the story of "Silent Night" but this version was created prior to historians finding new information regarding the composing of the carol. If they would update the narration to reflect the fact that the words for "Stille Nacht" were written in 1816 and the music added in 1818, it would take away the fairytale aspect of the story. The segment called "Silent Night, World War II, 1944" is very well done - good story and very good actors. You may need some hankies before you get to the end of the story. "Holiday Fest in Austria" is a nice extra feature."
