Moomins and the Comet Chase (FI 2010, Maria Lindberg)

FI 2010, D: Maria Lindberg, 75’, German version, Blu-ray

The barometer is falling. Leaves are covered in grey dust. The sky is turning red. The Hattifatteners are the first to leave Moominvalley, more inhabitants follow. This is it, clearly visible: there is a comet in the sky! Moominpappa, Moomintroll and his friends Snufkin and Snif head off to figure out the secret of the flying fireball. They build a raft and ride it to the observatory in the mountains, a place that gives them a better view on the sky. There lives the professor, whose calculations reveal that the comet will hit the earth in four days, four minutes and forty-four seconds. Moomintroll and his friends decide to return to Moominvalley to warn everyone. On their way, they meet Snork and Snorkmaiden and become friends with them. But still, there is this tricky comet…
With tender puppet animations, MOOMINS AND THE COMET CHASE tells an adventure for small and big GEGENchildren, talks of a changing environment and of the courage to take action. Starring Björk’s comet song and lots of surprising incidents.
