It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

It's perhaps the most renowned film of the Christmas season: Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life tells the heartwarming and realistic story of George Bailey, a small-town banker who is threatened with losing everything following a series of unfortunate circumstances. Contemplating suicide, George is aided by the help of his guardian angel Clarence, who seeks to show George what the world would be like if he'd never been born as he so desperately wishes. It's a wonderfully made film, with all-star performances given all the way around, from the major actors like Jimmy Stewart, Lionel Barrymore, and Donna Reed to the smaller side roles filled by such renowned actors as Ward Bond (among others). It's fairly long but doesn't drag on as one might think -- it's almost instantly engrossing and captures viewers' attentions for the entire timespan. Its story -- while dark at times -- is one that is told in such a charming and memorable fashion that it has become one of the greatest holiday classics of all time, and for good reason. Be sure to check this film out.

Content Advisory: A few scenes of violence; a child is hit repeatedly by his drunk boss and a couple punches are thrown later. Blood is seen occasionally, and one scene shows a police officer (quite recklessly) firing his gun, but no one is harmed. There are also a few scenes of smoking and drinking and a few light innuendos, but nothing too serious.

A holiday favourite for generations... George Bailey has spent his entire life giving to the people of Bedford Falls. All that prevents rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town is George's modest building and loan company. But on Christmas Eve the business's $8,000 is lost and George's troubles begin.

A wonderful film, now a classic. Black-and-white, starring James Stewart as the depressed businessman George Bailey. Flashbacks to his life, leading to a crisis and almost pushing him over the edge, then a delightful episode with his guardian angel, the bumbling Clarence.

Very well made, and quite a captivating watch, although some scenes are a bit violent for young or sensitive children. There are innuendoes too, but nothing explicit, and no bad language to speak of. But some quite tense and potentially worrying situations including a near drowning and a fist fight.

Highly recommended to adults and teens wanting a rather different Christmas film with en encouraging message. Heartwarming in places, moving in others.

=======================================

I’ve seen this movie twice trying to fathom why it is so beloved by 99 percent of the human race. I couldn’t do it. I belong to the one-percent minority. Obviously, it has merits. It’s a cute fairy tale with an epic touch and the closest approximation to the ideal Everyman as a protagonist. Jimmy Stewart and Frank Capra, even separately and all the more so together, can pull off any character and any story. It’s nice to see the lovely Donna Reed adding distinction even to the most ungrateful part, the adorable Gloria Grahame playing her first femme fatale at the ripe age of 22, and Lionel Barrymore doing one of those curmudgeons he specialised in towards the end of his career. For all that talent, charm and craftsmanship involved, the movie is for the most part slow, talky, lacklustre and just plain boring. I mean boring beyond belief! At least three times I nearly fell asleep. As for The Big Message, it is indeed THE BIG MESSAGE. It is that subtle. It is also sentimental, smug and superficial. Precisely the same message is imparted in Forrest Gump (1994) with much less melodrama, more and better humour, no smugness at all and far greater depth and power without the dubious benefit of wingless miracle workers. Life is indeed wonderful (if we only knew it!) when seen from a certain angle. It’s a Wonderful Life is not my angle. It has a few wonderful moments and many more dull ones. Twice was enough, thank you very much. ( )
