One of the most beautiful Christmas movies I've seen in a long time. The films tells the story of two kids trying to re-unit their parents and in order to do so they get lost in the mountains on Christmas Eve. Where everybody would expect cheap action scenes a la "Alaska" the story has much more subtle and romantic approach.
Some sequences even bring up memories of great classics such as "Night of the Hunter". The outdoor scenes in the mountains just blew me away and the acting of the two main characters - the children - is really impressing. The film was realized with love to the detail and I got a good impression how life was a hundred years ago. The film has the potential to become a film classic itself. In any case it's a brilliant adaption of the novel and good family entertainment.
