Happy Christmas! Here is what Yeona and Steeleye think about movie and drama-wise for Christmas.
1 drama Last Christmas
It technically takes place in the Christmas season, but it is mostly a romance story about a terminally ill woman and this likeable neighbour who falls in love with her as soon he decides to help her. It’s one of the older japanese dramas and a pleasant watch for Christmas. Watch as miracles happen- it is a season for miracles after all.
1 western movie: It’s a wonderful life
A Christmas Classic. I love rewatching it whenever I get the chance. It may be considered a conservative choice but it remains one of my top favourite American movies. It’s a rich and positive, heart-warming story. What life would have been like if George never existed? How his life affects others? And can a man help an angel as well as himself and those around him?
Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends
Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!
Look, Daddy. Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.
1 Anime Tokyo Godfathers.
A film by Satoshi Kon. It’s about three homeless people who find a newborn baby during Christmas and try to find who the parents are. The movie does play a lot on surprising heart-warming coincidences and invites to reconcile and forgive as well as think about what is love and what is family. As the three people quest for the baby’s parents, they encounter people from their own past and find their own hopes and their own little miracles. Kon was an excellent storyteller/director. Another movie of his I’d recommened is Millenium Actress.
1 Song : I heard the Bells on Christmas Bell, singer: Johnny Cash
Thid year a suggested hit should probably be Nelson Mandela by the Specials. For me, however, there is one song that remains a favourite throughout the years. It’s a poem by Henry Longfellow, rendered in song by Johnny Cash
1 movie: The recipe
I chose it because it isn’t just a movie about a particular food, it is about feelings. What do you feel when you eat? Do you feel the emotions of that person who put all the heart and hopes in that food to make it unforgettable? On Christmas, be thankful for everything you have.
1 drama: Prime minister and I
It’s a perfect drama for Christimas, considering that it deals with various themes (love, life matters, family, kids and so on) in a natural way and with a touch of comedy. It’s a drama you can watch alone or with your friends or family too.
Considering that it’s still airing, until new episodes come out (there are 6 episodes available at this moment) you can watch another drama that shows the connection between family members and more and also the importance of traditional food. That drama is: Fermentation family.
1 western movie: Despicable me 2
There are so many Christmas movies, most of them are aired every year on tv, so I chose a movie from 2013 that even if it has no connection with this holiday, it fits perfectly with the joy we feel in a moment like this.
1 special drama: Eunguk and the ugly duckling
The message of this one episode drama? There is no need for a blood tie between two people in order to act like a real family, like brother and sister, to enjoy each other’s company. When it’s Christmas don’t forget about those people who were next to you when you needed them the most.
