Watching Trnka's 'Two Little Frosts' brought this back to me and I watched it so many times in my childhood I did not feel I needed to re-watch it to review it. In fact, I was almost banned from watching it as a child as the ending so invariably brought me to tears. Brigg's frizzy line-work is like a warm Christmas jumper, making the seasonal tragedy all the sadder. But frolicks are had before the inevitable end!
Schmaltzy schmaltz wrapped in extra strength schmaltz garnished with schmaltz leaves and directed by Schmaltzy von Schmaltzington, First Baron of Schmaltzberg. Of all the Christmas flicks I hate, I hate this one the mostest.
