When I read what this movie was about, it sounded silly, absurd and dishonest. Which of course it is, too! But then when I watched it, I was still seduced by it. Because it recaptured that Christmas magic that one could feel when one was a child, and still able to see a whole world in a snow-globe or a Christmas tree ball made of glass... A wonderful movie to help you get into the Christmas spirit! Also, the fact that Angela's real life is taking place in a big city in present times, and in a slightly dysfunctional modern family, makes it easier to identify with her.
I loved the innocent and healthy snow-globe world..! There were so many perfect images of Christmas in there, that I had to stop the movie several times just to watch them closely! I got some ideas for Christmas decoration next year as well! :-) ...but of course I also understood the message about stop looking for the perfect things that do not exist, and that you probably would get bored with quickly even if you could find them. And to be happy with what you have got in reality instead. Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful! This is a wonderful Christmas movie to watch with your family. Both children, teenagers and adults will find something to love in it!
