To the Editor
This is in relation to the excellent article by Priscilla Waggoner in the December 23rd edition entitled ‘An Unexpected Peace with Good Will Toward Men". She mentions a movie made of this. The one that I have is titled "Joyeux Noel" done in 2005.
It is, of course, a fictionalized story of one possible scenario of the Christmas cease-fire of World I, but it is excellent viewing for the Christmas season. It depicts love in all its varients: father/son, husband/wife/, priest/flock, brother/brother, soldier/comrade. But there are also feelings of guilt and revenge. The music in it is beautiful. When the Scottish regiment bagpipes begin to accompany the German singing Silent Night, I still get teary. I highly recommend this movie know the Alamosa Public Library has a copy, or perhaps it can be found on NetFlix, or purchased on Amazon.
