A Day at the Movies December 16, 2014Posted by Dori in Movies.
Should we talk Holiday movies this week? Any weird obscure ones or not so popular titles that you can recommend? One of our favorite family movies is Scrooge, a musical Christmas Carol rendition with Albert Finney – we’ve been watching that for ages – the music is great and Finney makes an amazing Scrooge. I do like the foreign film Joyeaux Noel, about the temporary Christmas truce during World War I. Another favorite is A Christmas Tale, a French movie about a troubled family, that takes place at Christmas time and stars the beautiful and imposing Catherine Deneuve. But most unusual of all is Rare Exports, a Finnish movie about the traditional Finnish practice of capturing and taming wild Santa Clauses – these are some bloodthirsty elves! It’s funny and harrowing at the same time. Makes me thankful for our jolly, harmless American Santa.
