From Finland, the land of the original

Rare Exports, Inc. They deliver the extremely rare original Finnish product to nearly 150 countries every Christmas, exclusively. It's a big download (the small version is 35.5 MB) but that's nothing compared to the patience these hunters must have to catch their prey. [NSFW, via MonkeyFilter.]

I guess he really is a wildman! But children can sense the truth.

Wow, the time, the expense, the skill and the story really is well done. But I still feel a bit disturbed.

That was pretty good. What I thought was going to be the punchline of the entire movie was given away half-way in, and the rest was pretty imaginative, if a bit disturbing.

Happy non-denominational holiday of your choice to everyone.

I thought it was gonna be Jagermeister, even though it's German, I think. You can chop the link to go to the site of Woodpecker Film. That was a really professional production.

Very well done - film, acting, music, narration...and like bcc said, the "surprise" mid-way through was only - well, literally, half the story. I liked it more than I thought I would. Quite bizarre in concept, but wonderfully executed.

Thanks, homunculus.

Happy Chrismanukwanza everyone.

Very well done and kept me chuckling for several minutes. Little details like the tracker tasting the droppings were the best. A little more old man tackle than I was expecting.

Thanks, Homonculus.

The score had a nice "christmassy" feel to it. Very well done.

I'm vaguely reminded of the fantastic Kids in the Hall short about pelt trappers in downtown Toronto.
