    Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale from Finland proposes to tell us the truth about Santa Claus, going back to some of the legend's more terrifying Pagan roots to the way we see him today. It is balls-out crazy, but always takes its ludicrous premise seriously, so you have to take it at face value too. It may be a black comedy, but the characters don't know that. On the surface, the film plays as one of those children's adventures, with a young Finnish boy from a bleak, tiny town as its protagonist. He notes all the clues, does all the research, but will anyone ever believe him that the original Claus has come down the mountain to punish the naughty? Rare Exports starts out slow and quietly tragic, but by the end becomes a ridiculous ride that makes you throw up your hands in surrender and laugh. 3 years 11 months ago
