| great Christmas film
This is a very good Christmas film that is sweet and funny, but avoids the sappy-ness of many family films. The story concerns a poor family in Austraila whose farm is threatened by a drought. The father worries that he won't have presents to give to his young son. The film has some great parts and the hilarious pig roast scene (remember, Christmas down under is in summer), would make the whole film worthwhile if it wasn't good already. The case of mistaken identity is very amusing and touching, and the landscapes are impressive. Some people may have actually seen this film without realizing it. It was also released in the US under the name "The Christmas Visitor" and in Austraila as "Bushfire Moon"--not sure on that last title. The film is really a change from all the clichéd, typical films seen in the US. I urge people to view this if they are sick of the same old Christmas fare.
