Excellent Christmas viewing
17 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Magic Silver is based on a popular Norwegian television series, a classic Christmas series which is entrenched in a generation's memories and feelings about Christmas.

Magic Silver is the element which controls the transition between night and day. A small community of Gnomes is responsible for maintaining the transition at an hour called Magic Hour. These are the Blue Gnomes, whose king is ill. When his young daughter, Princess Bluerose learns that humans use something called "money" to get a cure when someone is ill, Bluerose risks everything to steal money from the local humans, setting in motion a series of events which will change the lives of the Blue Gnomes forever.

The tone of Magic Silver is reminiscent of "The Lord of the Rings" but is lighter and more child friendly. The suspense and tension are very well executed, and the film plays out on a number of levels emotionally, making this a thoroughly enjoyable film to watch.

The young heroine, Princess Bluerose is joined in her adventures by a red gnome. The characters have well thought out story arcs and the two actors create likable characters with believable reactions to the frightening tasks and events they face. The human character is the film is played by a great Norwegian actor, whose performance creates a level of empathy and pity for the character whilst also making an excellent bad guy.

The film is eminently suitable for children and would make an excellent addition to family Christmas viewing.
