No matter how many times I watch this, I always cry a little at the end!
Sometimes it’s not just the film itself, but the accompanying memories it elicits that make something a success. I recall my late mum always used to make sure we sat down in front of the telly at Christmas to watch this – and we probably saw it every year for about 30 years! Why? Well, it’s an eminently watchable animation depicting a young lad who builds a snowman, only for it to come to life and take him on a few adventures on Christmas eve – including getting to meet and have a bit of a ceilidh with Santa – before, unfortunately, reality kicks in next morning. Aside from an introduction from a very handsome looking David Bowie, the rest of the audio belongs to a masterful score from Howard Blake (with a bit of help from Peter Auty) and the animation is mischievous and super. Doubtless there are more sophisticated animations out there – almost 40 years later; but this has a charm and innocence to it that ensures it stands the test of time really well.
An amazing animation that conjures emotions to the point of tears – a beautiful film with beautiful music.
The first viewing reminded me of childhood – and the freedom of being a child. The second viewing reminded me of the same childhood freedom,
but with the reality of being trapped in an adult world.
Favourite childhood memory
Watching The Snowman as a child was an annual tradition. I always knew Christmas was around the corner when my parents put this on.
every child should watch the Snowman. You only get a few years of truly believing in magic and this film is the best form of magic you can find.
The lack of dialogue, except for the lyrics to “Walking in the air”, makes the cartoon even more atmospheric. All the emotion is in the music. Every child who has seen The Snowman dreams of building a magic snowman who flies them to see Father Christmas.
You’d need to have a heart of stone to not be moved when the snowman melts at the end.
