Never seen this one from 2012, but intend watching it tonight. Not sure what I'll make of it to be honest, but it gets a 7.8 rating and reasonable reviews on IMDb, so it can't be too cloying -- if indeed, it is at all.
From Amazon:-

This is an excellent moving and provocative movie, based on a true incident, about a German mother and her young son in the winter of 1944. Three German and three American soldiers stumble upon her poor and rustic cabin on Christmas Eve. In the true spirit of Christmas she is willing to share her meager food with both Germans and Americans but insists they keep their guns outside. The tension, of course, is in her attempts to protect her son and control the animosity between the the two group of soldiers while they seek shelter under her roof.

I've seen it a couple times; Linda Hamilton's German accent can seem overworked at times, but then again, "accents" vary from area to area so... I thought it was a pretty good movie overall; kind of hit home, like the 1914 Christmas truce gets me.
