A Christmas Tale…Again

The annual competition for the best holiday film is coming to a close, and so far this year I have been disappointed.  Four Christmas‘ was funny, as expected to be, but drab and predictable.  Nothing Like The Holidays was nothing like the hopes I had for latino Christmas.  The script felt forced and cheesy despite the attractive cast.  

un conte de noelOne film that is sure to stand out in the mix is Un Conte de Noel (A Christmas Tale).  As is almost every holiday film ever made, the plot revolves around family.   The Vuillard clan is plagued with mental and physical illness, estrangement, and loss.  This film will have you laughing while you cry, and remind you just how potentially fun the holidays can be.  You can catch this film at the IFC  Center.
