Donderdag 24 december 2009 van 15:15 tot 17:25 uur op BBC 1. Film van Andrew Adamson uit 2005 naar het verhaalvan C.S. Lewis.
Jeffrey Overstreet: Lewis described a story’s sequence of events as “a net whereby to catch something else.” While Aslan’s intimidating power and glory has escaped them, the filmmakers have “caught” the essence of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. And they’ve blessed the holiday season with a first-class family film that will stand tall after Lewis’s detractors have spent their feeble arrows. (Philip Pullman’s criticisms are shown up as more and more ridiculous as time goes on.)
With its story of a savior who suffered the consequences for others’ sins, and whose power proved greater even than death, this meaningful myth reflects rays of hope into a culture paralyzed by the chill of unbelief, where many really would prefer a winter without a Christmas. Those who respond to the movie’s roar by running to Lewis’s book will find Deeper Magic in its pages. Meeting them there, Lewis himself will lead them “further up, further in.”
