Preview by Jack Foley
THE lights are up in the shopping centres! The ads are on the telly! The Christmas gift guides are out! And it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas…
But if you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional Christmas films then take a look at the wonderfully off-beat Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, directed by Jalmari Helander (out now on DVD and Blu-ray), the REAL story of Santa Claus that will have everyone believing again…. whether you’ve been naughty or nice!
On the eve of Christmas a young boy sets out to discover the truth behind several strange goings on in his small isolated village. Why have all the reindeer been slaughtered? Who took all the hairdryers and radiators? And where have all the children gone?
Seal the chimney, lock the doors, hide your children because the real Santa is coming to town.
Driven by his curiosity regarding a supposed archeological excavation located on a mountain near his remote rural home, young and adventurous Pietari stumbles upon the shocking, ugly truth about the being known the world over as Santa Claus.
Local legend suggests the jolly old man in the red suit was in reality a supernatural creature that, rather than rewarding children for being good, severely punished those who were naughty.
When a large herd of reindeer on which Pietari’s father depends for his livelihood is found slaughtered, the townsfolk suspect it is the work of hungry wolves that have crossed into the area from the nearby slopes.
But when all the local children mysteriously disappear overnight, Pietari fears the scientists on the mountain have unearthed something extremely sinister and very much alive from what is apparently “the largest burial mound in the world”.
