The story or Finnish artist Touko Laaksonen, known by his nom de plume Tom of Finland. He is brought above the radar of cultural history in this well-acted biopic. In postwar Helsinki, in conditions of the gravest illegality. Laaksonen produced thousands of homoerotic fetish illustrations and showing bulgingly endowed leather-clad guys having an unapologetic good time. Tom of Finland’s work arrived the liberated US in the 1960s via mail order and he became a different culture hero of gay liberation.
In a society that considered homosexuality a crime or a deviance. He using Tom of Finland as a pen name, imagined an unfettered alternative a sexuality that filled its figure-hugging trousers with joy and promise. While Dome Karukoski’s film-making feels quite cautious next to the balls-out bravery of his subject. This biopic certainly doesn’t water down Laaksonen’s distinguishable aesthetic, nor does it downplay the role of this modest Finnish man as an icon of gay freedom.
