All I want for Christmas: the Magic Time Machine

Christian Dyekjær, Denmark, 2022

92 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

Lucia is a teenager, flirts with Valdemar from her class, argues with her parents, and is one of the big kids at Santa school. Everything’s good. Until a confused principal at a mass meeting calls off Christmas! The principal isn’t at all himself – a resurfaced trauma from the principal’s past as Santa has made him distant, unhappy and convinced that Christmas is the source of all misery. In a marvelous circus, Lucia and the boy Elias, whom she is taking care of, find a magical time box. Using it, the two of them travel back in time to find out what happened to the principal and stop it so that he won’t call of Christmas.
