Trivia

Goofs

Snorkmaiden does not change colour in the movie. As she is a Snork rather than a Moomin, she should be yellow, with her skin colour changing to reflect her emotions. See more »

The Moomin family's adventure in Riviera has twists and turns.
10 October 2014 | by Pecce .See all my reviews

I had quite the expectations about this movie, but at the same time I felt that it was going to be a rushed experience. I had to remember that I was going to see a kids' movie.

The plot for the movie felt simplistic, but I reckon it was for purpose. Artstyle was amazing, creating atmospheres with colors only few animations can stand up against. The new characters felt a bit alien, but as the movie went on they integrated to the movie pretty well.

As what comes to the entire film, it's certainly something you want to show to your children, but it doesn't really offer anything else. I have the idea that the Japanese anime-version offered anything to everyone. This movie doesn't get that similar feel right. It's still fun to look at and some scenes are quite thrilling.

Picard gave his best at bringing in the Moomin glory to white-screen and the results are satisfactory...for the children, that is.
