Maybe not for American audiences, but
4 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie isn't for American audiences. It's not the cookie cutter, shallow, cliché filled Hollywood movie you would expect.

It's a European movie altogether and even if it has all the compulsory elements of a Christmas movie, it brings so many fresh ideas to the story, I was amazed.

Even the basics are European, like Santa being from Lappland not the North Pole, or even he's called St. Nicolas, not Santa Claus.

Don't believe the reviews written by Americans. It's a very well written and executed movie. Very British.

I enjoyed this movie very much and I also got a tear in the corner of my eye at the end.
