Finding a truly family friendly film is hard to do, which makes this film a rare find!
What we love about Treasures of the Snow is that the adults are adults. The Woodcarver, Grandmother and Teacher guide the children to virtue in what was a very difficult situation. It is all about forgiveness and being forgiven...absolutely beautiful! There is no talking back to adults or side romance plot. One scene is a little suspenseful for young ones, but is not drawn out.
For families used to more modern movies, this does move a little slower. This was the first movie we allowed our son to watch, and he continues to ask to watch it again and again.
