A wonderful christmas movie that keeps repeating itself every year. Jean Shepherd is a great storyteller, (I watch his television series "Jean Shepherd's America" in the 1970's in PBS and that he's great at storytelling. He also a great writer) wrote this tale of a young boy (I believe it came from his childhood experiences) who wanted a b-b gun for christmas, whom the grown ups kept warning him that it will put a eye out.
Like "It's a Wonderful Life," "A Christmas Tale" keeps getting better with each passing viewing.
Funny enough to see once a year. There's no need to see it in a theater, though, it probably plays better at home while you're decorating for the holidays.
