Synopsis

Based on Tove and Lars Jansson’s books, Moomins on the Riviera celebrates the universally loved characters in their original context.

Created in a unique hand-drawn animation technique inspired by the original comic strips, the film follows the Moomin Family, Snorkmaiden and Little My on an exciting and unforgettable adventure. They set sail for the Riviera, where, after a journey fraught with menacing storms and desert island dangers, Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy’s sting is the most painful of all.

When Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name ‘de Moomin’, an exasperated Moominmamma retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat, to wait for her family to come to their senses.

For the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened.

A film for all audiences, the Moomins embrace cross-cultural understanding and tolerance. Addressing universal themes such as finding joy in the small things in life, family, and optimism, Moomins on the Riviera is sure to resonate with viewers around New Zealand.
