One of the strangest, most off-putting Christmas-themed tearjerkers ever conceived.
Number 2 in my quest to see 30 Christmas Films by Christmas Day. Had never heard of this one in my years of TV watching during h season and wondered why. Was it the teaching of Christian values. Made in 1957 its about a man and women who move to Wisconsin from the Faroe Islands. Shows their life and raising 7 children, dad dies, then Mom dies and the oldest son who is all of 12 must places the children in homes on Christmas day. Worth 4 1/2 stars
Uber tearjerker that is always shown around Christmas, it is sad, sad , sad but has good performances and a sort of twisted beauty to it.
