Silent Night Reviews
While there were moments in this film that certainly felt like a Hallmark card, where the music builds to a tear-jerking crescendo, or characters declare how much they've learned or changed, and while there were many more moments that fell into the hilarious parodies of old war movies (i.e. "Come on, Sarge! You're gonna make it, Sarge!" etc.), overall, "Silent Night" was a nice look at humanity in the middle of war. Not likely to shock or offend, not likely to win any awards, not as gritty or realistic as "Joyeux Noel" or "Midnight Clear," but I suppose it's a good option to show your high school history students when you don't feel like teaching for a day.
