Charles Dickens’ timeless story of Ebenezer Scrooge meets Disney’s 3D animation and Jim Carrey’s voice to convey to the Youtube generation a story that’s never been out of print since it was first published in 1843. A Christmas Carol, however, is an easy story to relate to, since the human condition remains the same even after almost 200 years.

Ebernezer Scrooge is a bitter man. Unable to enjoy his vast fortune, he is grumpy and miserly, picking on any little thing that bothers him, which happens to be everything under the sun. When Christmas arrives, he cannot understand the cheer and hisses off merry carol singers in his way, gruffly gives his clerk the day off and turns down his nephew’s request to join him for Christmas dinner, preferring to be alone.

But as he gets home to his lonely mansion, he is visited by the suffering ghost of his friend Jacob Marley who tells him to get his act together before it’s too late. He himself is in chains and warns Scrooge that a worse fate awaits him for eternity. Consequently, three ghosts take him on a journey into the past, present and not-so-distant future, events that reveal his heart’s condition, prompting him to act NOW.

A Christmas Carol has been adapted to film since 1901. Several novel adaptations (including a zombie story), radio dramatizations, telly series, theatre productions and 19 movies later, it comes back to the big screen with a l’il help from Zemeckis and Disney (whose Academy Award-nominated Scrooge McDuck was quite a rage in the early 80s). And despite reprising the story after all these years and augmenting it with technology, the story thankfully remains the same, with moral connotations if you please. It will therefore come as no surprise, if while watching A Christmas Carol, the Scrooge within is discovered.

Watch it for the superb 3D effects, Carrey’s facial features, and Zemeckis’ treatment, striking a balance between exaggeration and understatement.
