Even though Korvatunturi and the area in which the movie takes place are well within the Arctic Circle, there is still daylight during Christmas. At that latitude the sun sets weeks before Christmas and doesn't rise again until after New Year. See more »

I just recently caught a screening of Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale and I was definitely not disappointed. My expectations were relatively high after having seen the two short films previously released in this series, and while this version did stray somewhat from the concepts shown in the short films, it did stay true to the overall feel of the previous incarnations.
Although this film was not particularly deep or thought provoking it was very fun to watch and highly enjoyable. Somewhat creepy in places, this was mainly played up for humorous effect and overall the film displayed a dark sense of humor quite different from any Christmas movie that I have ever seen.
I would highly recommend this film to fans of the original short films or anyone looking for something a little bit different around the holiday season!
