A fun, family film is undeniable, his style of humor is similar to the later "Christmas break". Here, however, the jokes seem more pert and cute due to the clear focus of the picture in children: from person is times the child is the story of history.

Although, to be more precise, you should say, rather, the story is the grown-up version of the protagonist. But all of his experiences, all his dreams and fantasies are transferred exactly in the form in which they are presented head nine-year-old boys. This picture and attractive: you're looking to literally see yourself. You remember at this age exactly the same thought about those or other things in the context of reality, and not your imagination were completely different entities and events are often unfolded not as like us at while we, preserving the children's offense, in the head only engineered a fabulous story of such a scenario, of which only the winners we go.

It works in a sense of nostalgia. From this there is a certain heat pattern, which is only podbadrivaya Christmas atmosphere — verified exactly set, because there this feast is, so to say, one of the main "actors". Snow, parades, decorated Christmas trees, faith in the miracle expectation of gifts — such impregnated film and in General, its main the narrative is based on the gift that wants to get the main character Ralphie (Peter Billingsley), but a deny all the strange for his reasons. Hence, fantasy quirky actions based on tricks so — all for one purpose.

Together with the here shown ordinary everyday American family of the 1940s and again the ball is ruled by the atmosphere of the time, closely matching and complementary to the surroundings. Bob Clark — Director — seamlessly wove these two things, forcing the Western audience not just wondering, but for real, to fall into a pleasant melancholy in the past that, perhaps, these audience not found — still, "a Christmas story" is a classic holiday Comedy for the ocean to ensure sufficient only for quite a high IMDb rating to watch.

For our audience many contrasts will be visible and thereby will cause a dissonance not only temporary, but just and moral, because no for whom secret our nation think a little differently. However, I still, the film more than I liked.

Yeah, he is full of references to American culture of the 40s, it is the radio type "Lone Ranger", an early animation of Walt Disney and else — is far from our audience, why we doesn't look funny. But it still tape 1983, the year — nice, good movie, calling the value of family and listen to your elders.

He is one of those paintings that are created now to all of us so bored with the clichéd images of bullies and the bullies, then I mean here they were presented for the first time and it was here first they attracted audiences. This movie created an image of a bustling American family, where it often happens that the father-crank the main engine of the whole action, the mother of the catalyst and failing to brake on the action, and children — viewers, produce some insights, what is conveyed to the viewer. In this movie it doesn't look boring and hackneyed — it still looks like a sturdy, beautiful and nice work.

Before the New Year, merry Christmas — this film is very good; well as in movie ordinary days — good, comfortable, funny movie, calling to happen to seniors, to dream, to go to your goal and not to forget believing in the miracle, along with the forget about the feelings of others. Not to be vain, stubborn, agree with his right, if any, and to admit mistakes — we all they are subject to, and is not worth the guilt to "shift" to other people, especially family you shoulders.

PS Thanks for attention.
