This makes me feel Christmassy in the middle of August!
2 August 2006 | by (South Tyneside, England) – See all my reviews

It's a beautifully made Christmas treat.

It's lovely to see a film without needless violence or profanity for a change.

The Little Match Girl was put on for me each and every Christmas as a child and I will be doing the same for my children when the time comes.

It's so easy to watch and you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach... which is always a good thing! I defy anyone who doesn't have a lump in their throat at the end.

Everyone should put this on their Christmas 'Must Watch' list.

I need this on DVD!
