"Huge Surprise"!
16 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot express in words how surprised I was by this short movie. I stumbled upon this as part of a large collection of old holiday Christmas shows, and was not expecting much at all, and then I was hooked. This movie comes from interesting point of view hat could be expanded to a full length feature film.It tells the story of the gathering to the stable where Jesus was born. We all know the story, and have heard thousands of time in Christmas carols, but this hits the mark unlike no other medium. In short this is the ultimate Christmas movie. Raymond Burr is awesome as one of the three kings. I also enjoyed the angel revealing himself to the shepherds.

The movie has stayed with me since viewing. It will become a tradition in my household. I highly recommend it to those searching for a little perspective on the true reason of the season.All in all quite enjoyable.
