TOVE is a delightful formative-years biopic Finnish creator of the beloved Moomins, Finnish artist Tove Jansson. The endearingly bumbling joy of the Moomin characters Thingumy & Bob are know world-over, but their creator is a mystery to most. Director Zaida Bergroth and star Alma Pöysti bring to life the vim and charm of Tove herself, exploring her love affairs with both men & women, and creative challenges in a swiftly evolving post-war Scandi society. The art-history attention to detail is worth the entry price alone - look out for an impressive replication of Tove's live-in art studio, as well as the coded life-references within her work. Tove said - "life is a wonderful adventure and one should explore all its twists and turns"... - join us at Regent Street Cinema to enjoy the ride.
