Valkoinen Peura

"Valkoinen Peura", also known as "The White Reindeer" is a Finnish film which won a Golden Globe in 1952. It's an absolute gem of a film and rarely shown outside of Finland.  The film itself defies the stereotypical horror genre and seems immersed in both folktale and ritual, capturing the loneliness, myth and mysticism of the Finnish landscape.  Seek out and enjoy.
