A delightful animated comedy about the Christmas spirit
Review of Sagan om Karl-Bertil Jonssons julafton / Christopher's Christmas Missioná(1975) movie, by Stefan Stenudd
His father finds it out, but what happens next is not what daddy had surmised.
The style of animation is original and charming, with a well-found sort of antique air to it, and the story unfolds very pleasantly - still not ignorant of the injustices in the society portrayed. A social message is presented, but in a very sweet and enjoyable way.
Tage Danielsson had a very personal way of combining pathos with comic ease, and this is one of the best examples of it.
