WATCH: First Look At Biographical Tom Of Finland Flick, “TOM”

The film company behind an upcoming biographical flick about Touko, an artist who would later become world-famous as Tom of Finland, has released a teaser clip for the movie. Although details of the film’s cast and release date are scarce, it’s rumored to be in an early pre-production stage and scheduled to be finished by 2015.

The clip chronicles a raunchy exchange between Touko and two security guards—judging by the primo production value and über sexy actors, the film actually looks pretty promising.

The film’s manifesto is summarized on YouTube:

Until the year 1971, being gay in Finland could land you in jail for years. There was a boy born in 1920.
In his childhood, he drew pictures of naked men. While drawing, he wore only leather boots.
As a young man, he fought in the war and had sex with his fellow soldiers, both Finnish and German.
During his adulthood, he lived a double life. By day, a talented advertising artist and a pianist, by night a genius creator of erotic drawings.
We remember him through leather, huge muscles, even larger cocks and humour — empowering the masculine gay man. We know who Tom of Finland is. Now meet Touko.

      @B Damion: Tom of Finland wasn’t all that muscular. His MODELS were. And he also exaggerated a lot in this drawings (d’uh).

      @B Damion: I wasn’t being bitchy. I’m sorry if you interpreted it that way.

      The trailer certainly promises, hope the film delivers. Agree w/MikeE, Tom wasn’t all
      that muscular but the subjects of his drawings certainly were. I met “Tom” many years ago in the Argos in Amsterdam; he was in head to toe leather and a really nice guy too.

      I never got to meet Tom himself, but when we did a large exhibition of homoerotic fetish art here (my BF at the time was an artist) I met Tom’s “main model”. Very nice person, very sweet. Though his modelling career was over by that point.

      What the clip seems to imply through ToF’s fascination with the uber-blonde security guard is the artist’s interest in Aryan aesthetics. This sometimes found expression, especially in his early works, in the racial caricatures he created of African men and also in his employment of Nazi symbols.

      @MikeE: No, you weren’t. You are right. His MODELS were muscular.

      Queerty is right. Cast and info is very scarce. Looks like a while before we see this.
