Magics back? it was then...
16 December 2004 | by ianmcl-1See all my reviews

I have to say I consider this to be a beautiful little film, with its intertwining plots and anachronistic images.

The music is superb, the acting, well, appropriate but the theme and plotting is worthy of Dickens. Its a pity we don't see more of Malcolm's work... It works as a setting for some memorable songs (Magic's Back, Silent Night and,of course Fairytale...RIP Kirsty) but also brings history and magic alive. I loved it from the first time I saw it.

Like Snowman it has become a part of my Xmas viewing and I can only recommend it to ANYONE!!!
