Pick your movie of the week: International Christmas Movies (Dec 24-30/17)

Most of the Christmas movies we watch every year are American/Hollywood, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some non-American films that are considered Christmas movies. And since I haven’t seen them, the one that wins I will try and track down and watch it. Which one would you pick to watch?

Mon Oncle Antoine (1971, Canada)
Set in cold rural Quebec at Christmas time, we follow the coming of age of a young boy and the life of his family which owns the town’s general store and undertaking business.

Fanny and Alexander (1982, Sweden)
Two young Swedish children experience the many comedies and tragedies of their family, the Ekdahls.

2046 (2004, Hong Kong)
The women who enter a science fiction author’s life, over the course of a few years, after the author loses the woman he considers his one true love.

  1. Wow..I swear.. Kirk,( whom I have never met) took the juvenile 8 year old boy words right out of my mouth. So now I will pick “Mon Oncle Antoine” because it is Canadian and I actually had a “Grandpere Antoine “
