Tove is a new Swedish language biopic on the life of Moomins creator Tove Jansson and here’s a trailer for it courtesy of Screen International…
Set from 1944 to 1956, the Swedish-language film shows how painter Jansson finds worldwide success from an unexpected side project, in the midst of artistic struggles and an unconventional personal life.
It is directed by Zaida Bergroth (Maria’s Paradise), written by Eeva Putro, and produced by Andrea Reuter and Aleksi Bardy for Finland’s Helsinki-filmi. Alma Pöysti stars as Jansson, alongside Krista Kosonen and Shanti Roney. Pöysti has previously played Jansson on stage at Helsinki’s Svenska Teatern, and like the artist has dual Swedo-Finnish nationality.
