Moomins on the Riviera (2014)

Film
Thursday, December 1
7 pm
Cost: Free
The Moomins set sail for the Riviera, where Snorkmaiden is dazzled by a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy hurts.

France/Finland | 80 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Xavier Picard 

A hand-drawn animation feature celebrating Tove Jansson’s original comic strips and the universal appeal of the Moomins. The Moomins set sail for the Riviera, where Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all. (Official Website) 

"The folksy Nordic aesthetic of Tove Jansson’s lovable characters is bang on trend with our craft-adoring times, though there’s no mistaking this for a 21st-century movie. It’s more mid-century repro: cleanly hand-drawn, beautifully coloured and resolutely two-dimensional. And the tone is gently mischievous rather than exhaustingly wacky." - The Guardian
