Moomins on the Riviera DVD – review and giveaway

We couldn’t get to see the latest Moomins film at the cinema but Monkey and I have really enjoyed watching the Moomins on the Riviera DVD from the comfort of our own sofa.  My son doesn’t like some of the all action films that are about, that other children seem to thrive on.  I knew that he would love this film.  The pace and mood of the film is really gentle, making it perfect for us.  I loved the Moomins as a child and was really looking forward to introducing them to Monkey.  We got the popcorn out and pressed play.

Moomins on the Riviera DVD

Moomins on the Riviera sees Moominpappa and his family set sail on an adventure. They’re joined by Little My, after she and her sister are found on the shores of Moominvalley, having been shipwrecked on a pirate ship.  Monkey was hooked from that point on.

The family head to the sunshine and glamour of the Cote d’Azur where they are mistaken for rich celebrities and treated like royalty.  Of course they are totally oblivious and think that everyone is treated in the same way.  Moominmamma turns their palatial suite into a garden, and Snorkmaiden is taken in by the glitz and glamour of the movie star Audrey Glamour and her playboy friend Clark. Poor Moomin becomes quite jealous.

The story shows us that it’s far more important to be yourself than to put on a pretense and that real friends care about who you are, not what you have.  It’s a delightful, gentle film with lots of funny moments.  It’s more likely to appeal to younger children, but it certainly went down well here.

The Moomins on the Riviera DVD is released on Monday 28th September through Lionsgate Home Entertainment, priced at £7.99  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for your information.
