A refreshing depiction of youth with an unusual off beat and comedic dark sensibility, Belgium director Bouli Lanner's film The Giants, released on DVD by Artificial Eye on 12th November 2012, presents a childhood world full of adventure and mischief that echoes the literary world of Tom Sawyer.

It's summertime. Zak and Seth find themselves dead broke and ditched by their absentee mother in the family's cottage amongst the lusciously shot countryside of forests and lakes. Just like every holiday, they've resigned themselves to another crappy summer. But things change this year, when they meet Dany, a local teenager. Together, with their future at their fingertips, they begin the great and perilous journey of their lives.

The landscape is a playground we all associate will an idyllic childhood and this film is a tale of boy-ish exploits as they naively and often unsuccessfully resist the intrusion of the envious adult world, often in genuinely hilarious circumstances. The Giants is a charming and quietly subversive ode to childhood in the truest sense of the idea and although sometime is tinged with melancholy it never strays too close to sentimentality.
