A Christmas Story 4K 1983 Ultra HD 2160p
Indiana, 1940. Nine-year-old Ralphie dreams of the perfect Christmas present--a real Red Rider two-hundred-shot air rifle.

Grumpy daddy and caring mommy are naturally against it, believing that their precious sonny might hurt himself! So Ralphie decides to ask Santa Claus himself for help.

Review 4K Movie

This is a hilarious, undeniably family film with a similar style of humor to the later 'Christmas Vacation'. However, the jokes here look more cheerful and cute because of the film's clear focus on the children's audience: the story is told from the child's point of view.

Though, to be more exact, it should be said that the story is narrated by a grown-up version of the main character. But all his feelings, all his dreams and fantasies are rendered exactly as they were imagined in the mind of a nine-year-old boy. That's what makes the picture so appealing: you look and see yourself literally. You remember how, at a similar age, you believed just as naively about certain things that in the context of reality, not your fantasy, were completely different entities and events that often unfolded not at all the way we wanted them to, while we, preserving our childish resentment, only projected in our heads the fantastic plot of such a scenario, from which only we emerge victorious.

This acts on a sense of nostalgia. There is a certain warmth to the picture, which is reinforced by the atmosphere of Christmas, a well-adjusted and evenly staged one, for here the holiday is, so to speak, one of the main 'protagonists'. Snowfalls, parades, decorated Christmas trees, the belief in miracles and the expectation of presents - the movie is saturated with this and its main narrative is based on the present that the main character Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) wants, but is refused for reasons he does not understand. Hence the fantasies, the dodgy actions based on cunning and so on and so forth, all for one purpose.

At the same time, the everyday routine of an American family of the 1940s is shown here, and again the atmosphere of that time rules the ball, which tightly combines and complements the pre-Christmas atmosphere. Bob Clark - the film director - has organically weaved these two things, making the western audience not only get emotional, but really fall deeply into a pleasant melancholy for the past times, which, perhaps, these viewers have not seen yet. "A Christmas Story" is a classical holiday comedy across the ocean, to become convinced it is enough just to look at the rather high IMDb rating.

For our viewer, however, many contrasts will be noticeable and thus will cause dissonance, not only temporally, but also simply morally, for it is no secret that our nations think in slightly different ways. However, I still more than enjoyed the film.

Yes, it is full of references to '40s American culture, i.e. radio shows like 'The Lone Ranger', early Walt Disney cartoons and stuff - it is far from our viewer, why we don't look amused. But all the same, this 1983 film is a nice, kind movie that calls for appreciating family and listening to your elders.

It is one of those pictures that created the clichéd images of bullies, that is, they were presented here for the first time and the first time that the spectators liked them. This kind of cinema creates an image of a fussy American family where often the father is a freak - the main engine of the action, the mother is a catalyst and a brake on the action without success, and children are observers who make some conclusions that are transmitted to the viewer. In a movie like this, it doesn't look boring and tired - it still looks like a good, beautiful and enjoyable piece of work.

Before the New Year, before Christmas - this movie is very good, and as a movie on ordinary days - a kind, cozy, funny movie, urging to happen older, to dream, to go to your goal and not to forget to believe in a miracle, at the same time not forgetting about the feelings of others. Do not be absurdly stubborn, agree with their wrong, if any, and recognize the mistakes - we are all subject to them, and do not 'shift' their guilt on others' shoulders, especially those of your family.
