Coming to theatres soon after winning over audiences at the 2010 Locarno and Toronto Film Festivals, “Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale” is a re-imagining of the most classic of all childhood fantasies, and a darkly comic gem destined for cult status.
On the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, an archeological dig unearths Santa Claus. This particular Santa, however, isn't the one you want coming to town. When most of the town's children go missing, Pietari and his father, a local hunter named Rauno, come into possession of the mythological being. Rauno's clan of hunters attempt to cash in on the opportunity by selling Santa back to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. What ensues is nothing short of a wildly humorous nightmare — a fantastically bizzare polemic on modern day morality.
