Which movie to watch for Christmas?
With books to devour in front of a good fireplace (or stove) and Mariah Carey’s planetarium tube All I want for Christmas, the Christmas movie to watch with family or alone under the duvet is another tradition that continues. Imported directly from North America, the Christmas film is released every year in early November in France.
The stories are pretty standard and the ending of his feature films is always predictable and positive, but viewers are still fond of them. This is perhaps why TV channels love to bet on this type of program to fill their afternoon and sometimes even evening schedules.

Christmas movies: we never get tired of the great classics!
Christmas movies are there to warm our hearts, amaze us, make us dream and remind us of the most important things: forgiveness, love and family. Themes that constantly recur in the great classics of the genre such as The Grinch with Jim Carey, Mom I missed the plane with Macaulay Culkin, Gremlins, Current love or The holidaywhich will air December 1 at 21:25 on TMC. Because for our overseas neighbors, the Christmas season is the time when anything is possible, when everything is patched up and forgiven, and where wishes are granted.
As for French films, we prefer comedies like Santa is trash with the splendid company, The Bronzes go skiing, A tale of Christmas with Catherine Deneuve and Mathieu Amalric and, for history buffs, Happy Christmas by Christian Carion on the armistice.
With new services such as television or replay platforms, it is no longer necessary to make a schedule in order not to miss the TV movie. On MyTF1, 6play or even Netflix, you will find a “Christmas Movies” category to invent a magical evening throughout the year.
