“The Polar Express” is a classic children’s story written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg and translated to the big screen with an equally original vision by Robert Zemeckis who directed the movie and co-wrote the screenplay.
Zemeckis adds many original details to the story about a boy who lacks the faith to believe in Santa Claus. On Christmas Eve the parents remark how much the sleeping boy has grown and that it will soon be the “end of the magic” of childhood. The boy hears and wonders at this, even as a magical train stops outside his house. The conductor tells him that their destination is the North Pole, and he gets in a car with other children who are also in their pajamas.
The visuals are luscious and richly-textured. Zemeckis colors the story with the same Baroque surrealism of the book, using a shadowy, Ruebens-like palette. The atmosphere is similar to that in Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”—darkly mysterious and faintly menacing. Fat snowflakes fall throughout the night-time journey as the train passes over high mountains, across an icy desert, and through gloomy, moon-lit forests filled with hungry wolves.
Like many journeys, this one is allegorical. The children learn what their peculiar faults are and how they must overcome them. In this sense, it bears a strong likeness to the “Wizard of Oz” in that it has four characters sharing a journey to a magic city where they receive the knowledge about themselves they were lacking. Thematically, it is even more similar to John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress because of the underlying spiritual theme of belief.
The premise of the movie is that as one grows old one loses one’s ability to hear the ringing of a bell from Santa’s sleigh. This belief in Santa, unlike a Christian’s belief in God, is at first based on the act of seeing. During the journey the Hobo tells the boy that “Seeing is believing.” When they arrive at the North Pole the boy is saddened that he cannot hear the bells on Santa’s sleigh and that he cannot see Santa through the crowd of elves. In desperation, he repeats to himself “I believe, I believe,” and in that moment, as if in answer to a prayer, Santa appears at his side. Afterwards, the conductor tells him that “Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things are those you can’t see.”
