I said, “Let’s see a film. There’s one on about the French dance and club scene.”
Children looked blankly at me.
“Or we could see the Moomins.”
“Yay! Moomins!” Faces lit up all round.
This film is based on Tove Jansson’s comic strip, which is lighter and less weird than the books.
I found it a bit slow as it had no plot save your usual “commoners amongst high society” themes. But I really enjoyed the joke about the wannabe artist who only made elephants. Also when he tried to use the elephant as payment, it would only cover part of the expense and so he offered up more, to which the response was “Now your elephants are completely worthless – too many of them.”
LD#1 enjoyed seeing a Moomin cover themselves with drink by mistake and LD#2 liked the Moomins in bikinis jokes. She thought that the film was really good.
Something for all the family here.
