The last thing Charlotte and Ben expected is that Niklas, the last real Santa, crash lands onto their street in the middle of a thunderstorm just before Christmas.
Niklas is on the run from the ruthless Goblynch and his army of nutcrackers and he is stranded without his currently missing marzipan-loving reindeer, Twinklestar, who is invisible in the “normal” world.
Luckily for Niklas, he meets Ben and Charlotte. And if finding an invisible reindeer is not difficult enough they get involved in car chases, run into fake Santas and evil nutcrackers, knowing that if Niklas fails to fight off Goblynch, Christmas may be lost forever...
Meet Cornelia Funke!
"When Santa Fell to Earth" is a topsy turvey fantasy adventure adaptation of the popular book by Cornelia Funke and Cornelia will be attending this Matinee to meet her young fans!
We’ll have a sale of her books and Cornelia will sign them for you.
All proceeds of this Matinee and the book sale will be donated to the VIP ( Violence Intervention Program) on behalf of our happy and healthy Kinder Kino Kids.
Please note: this particular film is in German only with no subtitles.
Our 3-year-old son Luca is still a bit too young for these children's films. He usually lasts 20 minutes and then grandma takes him to the media lounge to watch "Die Sendung mit der Maus", to the children's playground behind the building or the pond with fish and turtles behind the next door building at the end of the cul-de-sac road. The film usually starts a few minutes after 10am. There is Brause (similar to Kool-Aid) and cookies and coloring paper and supplies on the table for the children to color. My husband and I tend to enjoy watching these children movies.
