Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Just in time for the holidays comes a unique Christmas movie about the origins of Santa. From Finland. With subtitles. Oh yeah, you're excited. This movie is a fun spin on the real tale of Santa Claus. FYI, he's buried in Europe. A financier funds an expedition to get Santa dug up. A small town witnesses the results. That's all I can say about the movie.

It's not that scary. It's not really gory. It is played serious, not campy. And it is a lot of fun. You can tell it's done on a budget. The ending really makes the film. What I can say is that it is a lot of fun. It is opening in selected theaters on Christmas Eve. Think Gremlins, if you're looking for the tone of the film.

Did you enjoy it?

 Would you see it in theaters again?
Maybe. Our family is looking for a movie to go to on Christmas.

 Would you buy it?
No, but I may put it in your stocking.

 Would you rent it?
Maybe next Christmas.

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
