Celebrating the re-release of Moomin, Neil Gaiman defined it as “a lost treasure that finally surfaces: one of the sweetest and strangest comic books that have ever been written or drawn. A surreal masterpiece. Truthfully.” The moomins are a bunch of beautiful things (yes, things), a hyper-white species of biped hippos that mix the incisive tenderness of Charlie Brown with a wise but naughty optimism in their everyday life. Based on Tove and Lars Jansson’ strips, Moomins on the Riviera is the first film about this childhood landmark in sixty years. The film maintains not only the playful visual sense of an aesthetics that resembles 1950s design, but also the moomin’s alterative way of rising as a liberating (loving) force. It’s something that, either in its film or vignette form, understands that being a child is also being a “thing” that knows how to watch smile, invade, and destroy when the time is right –without ever losing its tenderness.
