Orphaned the previous Christmas young Goose looks after his demented grandma, selling stolen goods to soft-hearted fence Frank on his Manchester estate. One Christmas Eve Goose meets Anthony, an enigmatic, fey stranger with apparent psychic powers, able to tell by touching them what people have lost, from Frank's first edition of Oscar Wilde to a retired doctor's wife. Hoping that its return will lead to him finding his lost dog, Goose persuades Anthony to help him retrieve a bangle he stole and ends up meeting the wife of his probation officer, whose young daughter died on the same day as Goose's parents. But Anthony is not what he seems to be at all and is capable of changing everybody's life for the better when his true identity is revealed. Written by

First of all this is a "must see" Christmas movie, and that is because been a tale it becomes personal, and here you have a potentially really good movie. The story is the strongest point, it gives scattered hints or pieces of a puzzle that all come together at the end, and that is by far the best thing of this movie. Unfortunately, I think that everything else fell short, and was treated as a B-movie, from photography to editing down to the actors, that at the end, I feel ,did not performed at the level I would have expected. I really think that the ambiance of a movie is as important as the story itself, and probably taking this story back in time, in a more charming looking atmosphere, (like "The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc"),adding a voice in the back that gives you more information about all the characters you meet, and definitely having a better editing and photography would have made this an all time "Classic Christmas Movie". But again watch it, it deserves it.
