while watching this i couldn’t stop thinking about how much i hate this film but i realized i actually just hated the way it made feel and not the film itself. it was painful. and i think that’s exactly what makes this such a great movie because it felt so real and so raw. it reminded me of my parents divorce in some parts and how difficult it is for all parties involved. very well done. i probably won’t ever watch this again though, i feel like shit now.
the soundtrack is the best thing about this. the costumes are sending me and the rest is really only mediocre at best but it makes me feel kinda nostalgic because since i was a kid i’ve been watching this movie every year around christmas. it’s very popular in germany and it’s definitely considered as one of the christmas classics here. i’ll give this 1.5 stars for the soundtrack and 2 stars for the nostalgia.
