USA 2010, 80 minutes
Dir. Jalmari Helander
In Finnish with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Horror, Comedy / Christmas


“Perfectly perverse... You simply need to see it to believe that anyone would conceive of such an outlandishly demented Christmas fantasy.”~MaryAnn Johanson , Flick Filosopher

Aroview: A wicked brew of 80s adventure movie and twisted horror comedy, centred on an archaeological discovery which may prove to be the remains of the real Santa Claus - or something else entirely.

Based on archaic legends of a Santa-type figure who meted out punishment to naughty children, this is peculiar to a Finnish sensibility, but has universal appeal in spades. Without being mean spirited, this is the perfect antidote to Christmas commercialism and sentimentality.
