The All Things Movies Xmas Advent Calendar – Day 20: The Snowman

Lets open door number 20 of the All Things Movies Xmas Advent Calendar...

The Snowman (1982)
Dir:  Jimmy T. Murakami, Dianne Jackson
Starring: Peter Auty, David Bowie, Raymond Briggs 

Behind door 20 we have a bit of a cheat. We’ve spoken a couple of times on this list about iconic Christmas movies and non more can this be seen with The Snowman, a film that captures the spirit of the season and distills it down into a crisp 26 minute short animation.

After building a snowman, a young boy finds his creation come to life in an adventure which see’s them takes the skies and visit the North Pole. The wordless adventure is often played back to back with 1991’s ‘Father Christmas’ and is the perfect tonic to the often seen frenzy that comes with this time of year. This is a Christmas Day watch for sure; the earlier, the better!
