Movie Mondays – Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Every Monday I’ll post about a movie I’ve seen (whether  recently or some time ago), or a video I’ve shot myself (perhaps even more than one!). I hope you’ll all join in and post a comment with a link back to your own Movie Mondays posts.

No matter how much you love Christmas, sometimes all the schmaltz in the seasonal movies gets too much. We get sick of seeing misty-eyed children catching a glimpse of the fabled Man In Red; bored with heartwarming tales where some underprivileged unbeliever finally believes; and tired of Scrooges being filled with the spirit of Christmas (not the alcoholic kind!).  Sometimes we want something bitter to cut through the saccharine sweetness…

So, what if everything we thought we knew about Santa Claus turned out to be lies? What if it was all prettified for the kiddies and we forgot the truth? What if Santa isn’t a nice guy at all? You’d better watch out, because Santa knows if you’ve been bad or good – and he doesn’t give a damn!

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale looks to be the perfect antidote to all the slushiness we can usually expect at this time of year. Hard-edged and throwing all the myths and legends back in our faces, bringing something far more dangerous and visceral to life. This year, EVERYONE will believe in Santa Claus…

I can hardly wait to see this film!
