A trailer has been released for Tove, the biopic of Moomins creator Tove Jansson, directed by Zaida Bergroth with Alma Pöysti in the title role.
Helsinki, 1945. The end of the war brings artistic and social freedom for painter Tove Jansson: modern art, dizzying parties and an open relationship with journalist Atos Wirtanen (Shanti Roney). But her desire for liberty is put to the test when she meets theatre director Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen) and faces unrequited love.
Yet as Tove struggles with her personal life, her creative endeavours take her in an unexpected direction. A side project based on the melancholic tales she told scared children in bomb shelters, begins to take on a life of its own and the exploits of the Moomins bring Tove international fame and financial freedom.
Tove is slated for a theatrical release in Finland on 2nd October 2020.
