Les Géants, The Giants is a refreshing coming-of-age film, and I had to share it with you after seeing this film tonight. It’s about the misadventure of three teenagers, two brothers and their friend, left to fend for themselves and that they do. There‘s quite a few of comic moments, we all know boys will be boys. Still, I found the boys charming, vulnerable and really good in the film. But it was the lush Belgian landscape, the beautiful shots that made me appreciate the film even more.
