The Giants

Les géants

Directed by Bouli Lanners
Belgium, France, 2011
Drama, Adventure

Synopsis

It’s summertime; Zak and Seth find themselves dead broke and ditched by their absentee mother in the family’s cottage. Just like every holiday, they’ve resigned themselves to another shitty summer. But things change this year, when they meet Danny, a local teenager.

Our take

Winner of several awards from 2011’s Directors’ Fortnight, The Giants is an often compelling and always unpredictable coming-of-age portrait set in the Belgian countryside. With shades of Mark Twain, the film carefully honors and articulates adolescence in all of its complexity.
