Moomins on the Riviera

Film / 3.35pm / Film4

the moomins have been go­ing strong since just af­ter World War Two, leap­ing first off the pages of Tove Jans­son’s much-loved nov­els and comic strips onto TV screens, be­fore more re­cently fi­nally hit­ting the big screen in their first English-lan­guage out­ing. Moomins fans can breathe easy – the story is close in looks and tone to the quirky orig­i­nal and sees the sweet, hip­popota­mus-like Moomin tribe head­ing off to the South of France where their close-knit fam­ily is put to the test. The voice cast of Rus­sell Tovey, Tracy-ann Ober­man and Nathaniel Parker should help any­one un­fa­mil­iar with these de­light­fully in­quis­i­tive ad­ven­tur­ers get their bear­ings.
