Trivia

The first edition of the soundtrack 33 rpm output in France was quickly withdrawn from sale because Karen Cheryl had not asked permission from her producer (Ibach) to appear in the film or sing for the soundtrack. The disc was reissued with the same cover but with a new singer: Tilda (known then as the Tilda Rejwan). In Quebec, Nathalie Simard dubbed over the songs. See more »

Classic Christmas Tale
4 February 2005 | by (Winter Haven, FL - THE GREAT USA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on video back in the 80s when I was around four or five. And every time I went to the video store, this is the one I picked up. Loved it. I watched over and over and over and over (I'm sure you get the point) again. What attracted me so much was the teacher/fairy angel. She was so beautiful, and had a marvelous voice when she sang. It's a very original story, (two kids get lost in Santa's forest. The boy's wish is that Santa will have some rebels in Africa to release his parents). I'm sorry, but anyone who says this movie is bad is mistaken. As a child it was my favorite movie, today it ranks in my top ten. Find it, watch it, enjoy it.
