La Pere Nöel

Absolutely delightful, La Pere Nöel is a movie I could watch any day of the year. It’s a French film about a little boy around 7 years old whose father has died. He wants La Pere Nöel to take him to see his father.

While he’s struggling to sleep on Christmas Eve a burglar dressed as La Pere Nöel tiptoes into his apartment. The boy follows him out of the apartment and the bogus French Santa can’t shake him. He winds up getting the boy to help him steal gold because that’s what La Pere Nöel needs for fuel to power his sleigh and help the boy see his father.

The film has heart without being fake or saccharine. It should be a classic.
