The film is based on the original comic strips by the celebrated author, painter and illustrator Tove Jannson and is a bitter –sweet adventure taking the Moomin family from their beloved Moomin Valley to the glamourous Riviera, where Moomin Pappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name ‘de Moomin’, where Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attention s of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all. For the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened.
A Finnish/French co-‐production, the film is directed by Xavier Picard and produced by Hanna Hemilä. In the midst of a massive world-wide centennial celebration commemorating Tove Jansson the world premiere of MOOMINS ON THE RIVIERA in October 2014 will kick-off an impressive theatrical release throughout the Nordic region and worldwide.
