  • Reindeerspotting: Escape from Santaland

    2010. Finland. Directed by Joonas Neuvonen. In Rovaniemi, a northern Finnish town where many of the young people turn to drugs, Jani, a handsome, charming young man, becomes increasingly embroiled in addiction and violence. His story is serendipitously recorded by the filmmaker, a friend who follows him with a camera from northern Finland to Paris and the Mediterranean as he attempts to be free. But Jani is gradually undone by the addictive power of Subutex, a legal anti-addictive even stronger than methadone; a troubled family that depends on his addiction; and the thugs that maintain his habit. In Finnish; English subtitles. 86 min.
