Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Jalmari Helander

It’s the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, and an ‘archeological’ dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. What ensues is a wildly humorous nightmare – a fantastically bizarre polemic on modern day morality. RARE EXPORTS: A CHRISTMAS TALE is a re-imagining of the most classic of all childhood fantasies, and is a darkly comic gem soon to be required perennial holiday viewing.

“For anyone who can look a little askance at the monster that contemporary Christmas has become, this artfully made Finnish tale is — I kid you not — a real treat.” – Michael O’ Sullivan, Washington Post

“Conceived with winking humor and a terrific visual style, the pic is a rare treat.” Variety

“…a rather brilliant lump of coal for your stocking hung by the fireside with care.” Roger Ebert

“It’s dark fun, in the spirit of “Gremlins.”” San Francisco Chronicle
