It’s summertime and two brothers, aged 13 and 16, are in the countryside. Along with a friend they get up to mischief, smoke joints, drive cars and fool around with guns. Abandoned by their parents, things soon start to escalate: to earn some money, they sublet their house to some junkies and move into a fancy summerhouse. Beautiful settings, odd characters, great music and a perfect mix of humour and seriousness make ”The Giants” an unforgettable film. (BUFF Malmö 2012)
