Limited Edition Double Play (Blu-ray & DVD) in soft touch leather
effect slipcase with double-sided fold-out movie poster.
Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a
harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War
II, but life in Finland during peacetime proves equally
distressing. He finds post-war Helsinki rampant with homophobic
persecution, and men around him even being pressured to marry
women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating
art, specialising in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of
inhabitations. His work made famous by his signature Tom of
Finland became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the
flames of a worldwide gay revolution.
Directed by award winning filmmaker Dome Karukoski and starring
Pekka Strang, Taisto Oksanen and Lauri Tilkanen, TOM OF FINLAND
is the official Finnish entry for the 2018 Academy Awards
