Scandinavian Film Week


Since Scandinavia is traditionally considered the birthplace of Santa Claus, and of the New Year itself, we decided that it would be very symbolic to dedicate a film critic’s column to new Scandinavian films in January.


A bohemian costumed biopic about the famous Scandinavian Tova Jansson. She was born into a family of artists. Her father is a famous sculptor and her mother is a graphic designer. The events unfold in the difficult post-war years after 1944. The young creative person Tove searches in vain for himself on the basis of painting. However, despite all her efforts, she fails to get a scholarship, and the woman is experiencing serious financial difficulties. Tuva is also unlucky in love. But everything changes when her stories about the little Moomin people become incredibly popular. This is a film about the pains of creativity, about finding oneself, about bohemian life, about boundless inner freedom, about unconventional love, about painstaking work and well-deserved success.
