Tove: Tove Jansson (Alma Poysti) was not just the creator of Moomins, he was a singer, writer, playwright. Tove illustrates this as it covers his life from 1944 to the late 1950s. His love of people and the arts is clearly shown, like the poverty of his early days, denied by the grants he paid his rent for paintings. He finds his studio / apartment after Helsinki was bombed in 1944 and made it a masterpiece. Although the Moomins brought him financial security he felt removed from his real job and his father who needed to carve Viktor (Robert Enckell) criticized it as not artistic. His love life was inconsistent, with ongoing issues with politician / philosopher Atos Wirtanen (Shanti Roney) and theater director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen). Vivica’s polyamory caused her heartache, she had left Atos for her sake. Relationships were important in his life and career until he finally found love elsewhere. A moving story of art, love and friendship. Directed by Zaida Bergrothy from Screenplay by Eeva Putro and Jamo Elonen. 8/10.
