    :gingerbread: A wonderful Christmas movie: Joulutarina (Christmas Story)

    The plot is set in Northern Finland, where a little boy called Nikolas, loses his family in an accident.. The villagers decide to look after the orphaned boy together.

    Once a year - at Christmas - Nikolas moves to a new home. To show his gratitude, the boy decides to make toys for the children of the families as good-bye presents...

    Trailer

    The film comes from Finland and was released in Greece last year.
    I loved it

    I suggest you see it...

    That sounds great, Olga. Was it spoken in Finnish or in English?

    Hi Elvira.

    The film is spoken in Finnish. Personally, I would not like it in English...
    It would lose all its magic..

    I hope you see it and tell me your opinion..

    The film sounds good, but I'm sorry the little boy has to go to a different family every year. Do you understand the Finnish language?

    Now wait a minute, Susie. Just because every child can't get his wish that doesn't mean there isn't a Santa Claus.

    Subtitles have never been an issue to me either. Since i watch a lot of J-Horror movies they are always subtitled.
