Synopsis


The Snowman
This half-hour British production faithfully recreates author Raymond Briggs' classic children's holiday tale, in which a young boy's snowman magically comes to life and whisks him away to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. Appropriate for very young children, the film has no dialogue, relying instead upon its images to tell the tale. The score by veteran composer Howard Blake features one song with lyrics, the hymn-like "Walking in the Air." The Snowman was nominated for Best Animated Short of 1982. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

    I came acquainted with this holiday animated feature over a year ago by a friend of mine. After viewing it, I wanted to add it to my film collection and was delighted when Best Buy stocked it this year. It is an excellent animated feature that invokes the usage of our imagination (which makes it work best). The Raymond Briggs introduction is excellent and everything flows freely until the conclusion! Aside from the introduction and a song in the film, there is no dialogue (just background musical score) and that is something that really makes this film special. Of all the animated holiday features out there, I rank this one amongst the best. No matter what your age is, this is definitely something for all to enjoy!

    Raymond Briggs' 'The Snowman' is one of the most beautifully presented and scored animation features I've ever seen. There is no dialogue, which is just what makes this one the true masterpiece it is. My highest recommendation!

    Many years ago my youngest loved to sit in his Gammy's lap and watch this video. Now 20+ years later he has a new dvd of it and still loves it.

    I remember watching this when I was little, in grade school. No words, just music but it's touching and sweet.
