Moomins on the Riviera 2014
80 mins Finland Director. Xavier Picard
The Moomin family decide that a trip to the Riviera is called for, in order to experience high society at first hand and recover from some stressful recent experiences. A name change to ‘De Moomin’ secures them access to the best hotel in town, where Snorkmaiden finds herself instantly enchanted by the power of celebrity and Moominpappa is seduced by the lure of wealth and title. However, the rest of the family seem less impressed by this superficial world.
Tove Jansson’s much-loved characters have never looked better than they do in this glorious, hand-drawn animated tale that will appeal to audiences of all ages.
