A different Christmas at the Filmoteca

During December, we can see some titles with varied and daring approaches on the Christmas theme

It's always thrilling to review titles like It's a Wonderful Life by Frank Capra, but it is worth get away from the more traditional style of Christmas movies and go for other films.

For this December, the Filmoteca de Catalunya  proposes the cycle Un Nadal diferent, where most transgressive films of court, where we can witness an apocalypse on December 25, or a grim-faced Santa Claus.

One of the funniest projections will undoubtedly be El día de la bestia, by Álex de la Iglesia, where we follow the footsteps of the strange alliance that make a psychotic Basque priest, a heavy-metal fan and TV presenter parapsychological, all of them facind the devil himself during the Christmas Day.

Nor can miss in alternative programming on Christmas The nightmare before Christmas,  the animated musical directed by Henry Selick on the history by Tim Burton,where the charismatic Jack Skellington, lord of Halloween Town, decides to travel to Christmas Town and kidnap Santa Claus.

 

Similar intentions move Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santagiving life to an eccentric Santa from a shopping mall, drinker, amoral and obscene.

The offer can not be more enticing. When the films are good, the celebration is served, although the screen does not overflow kindness and good feelings.
