Great storyline. A foreign film that is a bit of a tear jerker (in a good way). Brings realism to St. Nicholas. Instantly in my top 5 Christmas favorites!!
This story is heart warming but quite sad. My 3-year-old did not enjoy or understand it. My husband and I did find it interesting. It is not really about the saint at all. It is pure fantasy but a nice way of explaining why someone would devote their life to giving children gifts. The ending was too sudden. The cover art says it explains "how Santa Claus came to be Santa". I would say that it explains WHY Santa Claus came to be Santa. It really doesn't explain how.
