A heart warming film that will hold your attention Nov 2, 2006
A small Georgia town struggles with the rationing and sacrifices of America at war. Christmas is no exception as 11-year-old Gordy and his sister Priscilla sense a fear in the train station where they await their father s homecoming. Propaganda posters and tense adult talk drive home the evil of the enemy. When a train loaded with German prisoners arrives in the station, Gordy s curiosity is stronger than his fear. He dares to approach the prison train and makes contact with a young German soldier named Hans. Through the courage to trust and the song Silent Night, friends and foes learn the true meaning of Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men, and hearts are forever changed. Narrated by Mac Powell of THIRD DAY.
Heartwarming Christmas Story Oct 28, 2006
MY CHRISTMAS SOLDIER is a heartwarming story of the true meaning of Christmas as seen through the eyes of a child. Despite language barriers, the threat of "evil enemies" and the paranoia surrounding war-time America, a young boy is able to reach out and find common ground and humanity in a group of strangers desperately in need of solace on Christmas Eve. Superb performances and riveting story-telling. A wonderful Christmas gift for adults and children alike.
A treat to watch! Oct 28, 2006
The viewer is presented with a touching friendship between two American children and German POW'S (far from home on Christmas Eve, 1943). They meet by chance at a railroad station. This wonderful film is truly for everyone of all ages.
An added bonus is an interview with a real German POW who chose to live in America after the war. Very few people are familiar with this side of American history.
