Come Walking In The Air With This Christmas Fantasy (by Ron Oliver)
THE SNOWMAN built by a lonely young boy comes to life at Midnight on Christmas Eve, propelling them both on a fanciful, unforgettable adventure...Raymond Briggs' charming picture book comes to life in this delightful British cartoon. Here is a perfect excursion into realms of Imagination & Wonder. The Snowman's guided tour of the human child's home is a comic treat. Their flight over the frozen North Country & Polar Seas is exhilarating and full of white mystery.The serious themes of friendship's responsibility, and the inevitability of ultimate loss, are also hinted <more>
'The Snowman' is one of those few things on television that appeal to everyone from the youngest of children to the grown adults. It's a silent cartoon that relies on the wonderful soundtrack and the gorgeous animantion to tell the story of a young boy's friendship to the snowman he builds one Christmas Eve. The snowman is magically brought to life at the stroke of midnight and takes the boy on a magical adventure to the North Pole where they meet Santa Claus.In a brief twenty minutes, it portrays the sweetness of a child and the loyal friendships they are capable of as well <more>
as delving into loss. This British classic is on every Christmas on Channel Four, I remember being captivated by it as a small child and I'll still be tuning in this year at the ripe old age of twenty-four. I just hope that when I have kids, the tradition of airing 'The Snowman' will continue so I can share this with them.
I watch my PBS-recorded version of The Snowman every Christmas Eve along with a few other traditional holiday movies to clear my head of the excessive commercialism of the holiday and put myself in the mood for Christmas.The Snowman is a wonderfully simple film about a small boy who's Snowman comes to life. It's a terrific idea, for if you're a kid, wouldn't it be cool to make friends with a Snowman and be able to visit Santa Clause? Plus, the animation and the accompanying music, and even David Bowie's sentimental introduction makes this a wonderful adaptation of the book.
superb festive cartoon (by didi-5)
Shown every year on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day on UK Channel 4 since the channel launched in 1982, this charming and touching Raymond Briggs cartoon is the perfect accompaniment to turkey, wine, and Christmas pud.A cute little boy runs out to play in the snow in his back garden this is an England where everyone has lots of land and detached houses where he puts together a life-size snowman, complete with hat, fruit for his nose, and pieces of coal for his eyes. Come the night when he is in bed, he feels the urge to run down and see the snowman just to be sure he's real. But the <more>
Christmas magic means the snowman is alive and ready for fun.Several scenes are full of humour - the snowman being shown around the house, including his perfect environment a chest freezer , the race around the garden on a motorbike, and Father Christmas's party. The real icing on the cake comes with the flight through the cold night sky to the accompaniment of Peter Auty singing 'Walking in the Air'.With beautiful, flickering animation, memorable cartoon characters, and a bit of true Christmas spirit, 'The Snowman' is as close to a perfect half-hour as you can get. Other animations from the work of Briggs haven't come quite as close - this one is special. Long may it continue to be shown and celebrated, and find a place in the heart of new generations.
My class aged 9-10 recently studied the film and wrote short reviews. As this site provided some inspiration into this process I thought I would add some of the work produced:James, a boy, makes a snowman. Then something happens at midnight. The snowman comes alive! Wondrous things happen with James and the snowman.My favorite bit is the motor-cycle ride. And my favorite part with the motor-bike is when they go into the forest because its just fun for me and it seems like they hit the trees but they don't it just makes me wonder because the snowman is so big. I would recommend it for <more>
children to watch it however don't watch it over and over again or it will get boring. By KirkA boy makes a snowman that comes alive and takes him on a magical adventure to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. The best bit is the Snowman party at the North Pole. I like it when the Scottish snowman dances with the boy James . It makes me feel merry and shocked because the snowmen looked like they were having fun and the party decorations looked amazing. I would recommend it as it's for all ages and it's not violent. It is very amazing a snowman can be alive and I wish it happened to me! I also think this story is heartwarming and is perfect to watch with your family and friends. By AuroraA boy called James builds a Snowman on Christmas day. It came to life on Christmas Eve and they had lots of adventures and they even saw Father Christmas. The next morning they went home and the snowman had melted.Best bit?

The end is very sad unlike other movies and stories.By Nicholas.A little boy named James makes a snowman. At midnight the snowman comes to life and goes around James' house and has a fun adventure.Best bit? When the snowman flies around the city and arrives at the North Pole and sees Santa and the snowmen.Would I recommend it?

The snowman and James the boy's name go to the North Pole and meet Father Christmas and even different kinds of snowmen. They have a great feast and dance.I would recommend it because it's like the story makes you feel cool and nice, especially when they were riding the motorbike in the middle of the forest. There are good effects by ALICEI hope you enjoyed them :
I was 9 years old when I first saw this magnificent cartoon. At that time, I already felt the good-hearted emotion in the relation between a boy and his creation, the snowman. The beautiful story, wonderful hand-made, a little flickering animation creates a wonderful combination of entertainment and magic.Every Christmas, the Snowman is shown on TV. Every year, I still feel the same wonderful emotions. Tears come into my eyes when the snowman grabs the young boys hand, the music starts to play and they start flying in the beautiful sceneries. There's more than cartoon and music in this <more>
A Christmas classic: Half an hour of animated genius (by Pedro_H)
A little boy James builds a snowman in his garden who comes alive and leads the boy on a series of adventures.When we say "family" film we usually mean films that the kids can watch and the parents can just about stand after a couple of stiff drinks. The Snowman is one of those films that the whole family can watch and actually enjoy -- and enjoy over and over again.The musical scenes are quite wonderful and centrepiece song "Walking In The Air" is a total classic, indeed you should show that in film schools to show what great visuals and great music can do when they <more>
work as a team.The colourful animation is great to -- and when they fly over Brighton England , it really does look like they are flying over Brighton. I presume that they did a lot of research to make it accurate.This is like a little pop song. It is short, lively and uplifting. Despite the sad end. The song/film ends and the real world comes back and you marvel at how clever it all was. This is a little bit of genius in a world that is a lot colder than the one we see on screen.
An amazing animation that conjures emotions to the point of tears - a beautiful film with beautiful music.The first viewing reminded me of childhood - and the freedom of being a child. The second viewing reminded me of the same childhood freedom,but with the reality of being trapped in an adult world.
Sheer beauty, but disappointing end. (by dolph62)
All the way until the climax it's perfect, but it fails to impress after that and cannot retain the excitement. However, it's a classic for some people and definitely has an original and refreshing story and look.
