Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1

What about the Ghost of Christmas Lost?
13 December 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

There are numerous Christmas classics that we all know and love. And this year one has been added to the list. Lost Christmas is a poignant story that will touch the hearts of many. We are all familiar with A Christmas Carol, where we meet with the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future. But what if we've forgotten one on this list? What about the Ghost of Christmas Lost?

We start the story of a young boy who goes by the nickname of Goose who receives a puppy as a Christmas present. As he is so keen to go for a walk with his dad and the dog, but his dad cannot join him and so a chain of events is set in motion. This child's simple wish of wanting his dad home rather than going to work will alter the course of many lives.

One night, Frank, Goose's uncle, meets Anthony a man he sees lying in the street, who seems to be babbling nonsense and vanishes as fast as he appears. Anthony seems to have no recollection of who he is, where he came from nor where he's supposed to go but he seems to know things. Find things that are lost and make lives whole again.

The performance of the cast was brilliant and intense. I fell in love with Anthony's innocence, inherent sweetness, fearlessness and brutal honesty. Eddie Izzard's performance is flawless and stellar. The way Eddie brought Anthony to life is done in such a manner that I will remember Anthony for each Christmas to come in my life. He might be the Ghost of Christmas Lost but I'll see him as an Angel too. I have seen almost all of Eddie's work and I must say this performance has to be one of his best.

In casting Larry Mills as Goose, we see a rare performance of a child that brings so much life to a character that he becomes real. I foresee a long career for this young man, that will take him many places. I can't wait to see what he will do next.

John Hay did a marvelous job into bringing the story to life, he has a great vision on how to bring raw emotions to the screen, so much so that you're not simply following a story on a screen but you're right there with them joining them on this incredible adventure. A rare and precious gift to have. The lingering camera shots all over the city bring you to a different world, indeed the world of an urban fairytale.

And in praise of the writers of the story, I love the fact that the story seems to work on so many levels so that both children and adults will appreciate the story. When children grow older and see the film again I am sure they will be amazed at realizing more and more of the underlying story they might have overlooked when younger.

All in all a wonderful, touching, loving Christmas story that will linger with you a long time after the film is done.
