Rare Exports UK Release Details

Finnish movie Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, directed by Jalmari Helander, is all set for its UK release on Blu-ray and DVD on November 7th. It's about time too as it really is a wonderful movie. I reviewed it back in December of last year and it made my top 10 movies of the year. Actually it made the number one spot, it really is that good. You can check out my review that I wrote for Wildside Cinema here. The UK release is by Icon Home Entertainment.

Oscilloscope Laboratories will be releasing the movie in the US on October 25th on Blu-ray and DVD.

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”.
