Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.

Rare Exports is an unexpectedly delightful crossbreed of deadpan comedy and Christmas horror about the secret behind Santa Claus.

In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 meters deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up. This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Claus.

Language: Finnish and English

Edie (Drama)

83 year old Edie believes that it is never too late - packing an old camping bag, leaving her life behind and embarking on an adventure she never got to have - climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.

The film was shot on location in Sutherland and stars Sheila Hancock. Everything in the film was done for real by the then 84 year old actress.

I Love You To Death (Comedy, Crime)

Joey owns a pizza parlor, and is married to Rosalie. He's also a serial womanizer. Rosalie goes to extremes when she finds he has been cheating.

Wonderfully droll performances are given by everyone (Kevin Klein, Tracey Ullman, Joan Plowright) in this farce about a murder that doesn't quite work and a man who just won't die.

Joan Plowright steals every scene she is in -- which isn't easy in a film that is full of so many zany plot twists and hilarious lines of dialogue.

Not One Less (Drama)
Set in the People's Republic of China during the 1990s, the film centers on a 13-year-old substitute teacher, Wei Minzhi, in the Chinese countryside.

Called in to substitute for a village teacher for one month, Wei is told not to lose any students. When one of the boys takes off in search of work in the big city, she goes looking for him.

The film addresses education reform in China, the economic gap between urban and rural populations, and the prevalence of bureaucracy and authority figures in everyday life.

It is filmed in a neorealist/documentary style with a troupe of non-professional actors.

The General (Action, Adventure, Comedy)

Once again we bring you a classic silent movie with the added attraction of the talented Dave Watt at the piano. An evening not to be missed!

'The General' is a train and Buster Keaton the engineer who gets caught up in the American Civil War. When Union spies steal his beloved locomotive, he pursues it single-handedly and straight through enemy lines.
