Music Box is a parable, a simple story with a special meaning. It’s about a weary man who lives in a cold lifeless city. He has a boring job and a boring family. One day everything changes. In a snowy alley, he receives the gift of a magical music box.
A man trudging home from work through a dreary, snowy city is surprised by a joyous group of gospel-singing, tuxedoed angels. They give a special gift of love and life to the man: a magical box and the wondrous story of a loving king.
Music Box is a modern parable of the joy-filled life in Christ, and our responsibilities to share the joy. In the tradition of Christ’s parables and the allegorical fiction of C.S. Lewis, Music Box is a must for anyone who needs a little “hallelujah” amid the “ho-hum.”
Music by The Sensational Nightingales!
This is one of those Christian Classic films. The picture above is NOT of the actual music box in the film but I love the idea of this music box being a reminder that He is with us ALWAYS and that is what this movie is about as well.
Who remembers when they first learned of what Jesus did for them and gave their life over to Jesus for the first time? I remember the exact place where I was convicted of sin and knew that Jesus loved me and died for me. I even remember the month and the year – August 1989.
This movie is about that experience and what happens if we keep that experience inside and do not share the Good News with others. It’s a funny, rather silly movie and it’s one that is not your typical film, it’s almost like a mini-musical.
