I remember this movie from my childhood Christmases. We would sit in front of the old television and every year on the 23rd of December this movie would be on. Even though it's not a Christmas movie, it set's a mood and brings a Christmas spirit that's hard to describe. It's about good and bad, selfish and unselfish characters. In the end, we all have a bit of everything within..
