Storyline

Horace, a 8 years old boy, who still believes in Santa Clause, received as a Christmas gift a day at the mall. What ought to be a normal Christmas day turns into an adventure when Horace loses his mother. He mets John, a pickpocket disguised as Santa Clause, who was in the middle of an illegal operation. Unlike the Santas on TV, John doesn't seem to like children. Althought, the boy is convinced that this is the real Santa Clause and tail of it, causing all sorts of trouble as dangerous, as funny. Finally John finds the magic of Christmas and Horace discovers that miracles indeed, occur. Written by Me

A typical Christmas movie
23 February 2010 | by costinbadiciSee all my reviews

The action takes place in Bucharest, a day before Christmas. Unable to pick her son, Horatiu, a Christmas present, Carmen promises to offer him a day at the mall. Unfortunately, Horatiu gets lost in the shopping center and meets a thief,John, disguised in Santa Clause who doesn't seem to behave like the traditional Christmas character. The adventure begins as Horatiu is desperately trying to find his mother, while John's team is planning to steal a priceless diamond. It is a typical Christmas movie, inspired by the concept of 'Home Alone'. The fact that the distribution is Romainian may be a deterrent for foreign audience. Added to this, the actors' performance as a whole is mediocre and the screenplay reflects a dearth of originality. I recommend you watch this movie if you are a fan of Stefan Banica Jr. or you haven't got any Christmas-related films on 25th of December.
