Gentle Beautiful Winter Adventure

we’re walking in the air

the snowman not to be confused with the horror movie is definitely a classic the animation must have took the makers ages and the song walking in the air is so beautiful and so beautifully made it definitely a Christmas watch every year but as most people know the ending quite bitter

Walk along

Not to be confused with Snowden or the Snowman thriller. Including the 1982 hit Walking in the Air. The ending is a downer.

The music is fabulous and the story is gentle. This is a fun film to compare to the book (which similarly has no words, just pictures).

Lovely, gentle family film that is perfect Christmas viewing

We watch this film every Christmas and the kids love it. The music is wonderful. My son found the ending heartbreaking the first time he watched it (he was 2) and at 4 worried about the snowman and the boy melting at the end. I was puzzled, but when you watch it, you see that the boy kneels down in the snow, and then the screen goes white so to a child it does look like he melted too! For less sensitive kids I can't imagine there being any issues.

Absolutely beautiful

The music is beautiful and the illustrations are calming. This is one movie that you can feel good about exposing your children to. The is no harm done to anyone, no bad language obviously, and no silly faces that your children will imitate. The only thing that you may hear repeated is the beautiful melody sung by your children. Our family shares this movie with other families every chance we get.
