A Finnish Christmas Story - Updated!

Leave it to the Finns to make the only Christmas movie showing in the U.S. this year.

Based on the popular shorts by Rare Exports:

[Warning: Mildly NSFW, as it features a bit of Christmas sausage, if you get my drift.]

Update: Saw it this weekend. Entertaining movie with actual Finnishness. A little dark, but funny. Most of the movie is in Finnish with subtitles. I understand a little Finnish, enough to know that all of the bad words (there were a lot) were translated very mildly for the English subtitles. Hubby, who laughed heartily during the movie, commented that the Finnish dialogue was well written -- apparently there are subtleties in the language that were not (or could not be) adequately translated. Also, the boy's dad looks a lot like hubby.

The first video is a trailer for a real movie. The other two are short films.
