  • Three teenage boys stumble into an adventure without adult supervision in this comedy-drama from actor-turned-filmmaker Bouli Lanners. Fifteen-year-old Seth (Martin Nissen) and his thirteen-year-old brother Zak (Zacharie Chasseriaud) are spending the summer at their grandfather's home in the country. However, the situation isn't as much fun as it might sound on the surface; grandfather has passed away, and not long after their arrival, the brothers discover they've been left stranded by their mother, who has apparently decided to spend the warmer months elsewhere. Seth and Zak strike up a friendship with Dany (Paul Bartel), a nervy kid living nearby who lives under the thumb of his brother Angel (Karim Leklou), a notorious bully. Seth, Zak, and Dany set out to find fun and adventure after Seth gets grandpa's old car running, but money soon starts to run out, and after selling their furniture fails to raise much cash, the brothers hit upon a scheme to rent grandfather's cottage to a handful of ne'er-do-wells eager to use it as a grow house for marijuana. LES GEANTS (aka THE GIANTS) was an official selection at the 2011 London BFI Film Festival.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Benelux countryside is lushly lensed and there's an enjoyably melancholic score from Belgian folkster The Bony King Of Nowhere."
    Total Film

    "[T]his is a film that stays with you, resonating deeper than many a more cut-and-dried rites-of-passage tale."
