Synopsis, trailer and marketing blurb follows...
After being virtually abandoned by their parents, two brothers and their friend are left to their own devices in the family home amongst the lusciously shot countryside of forests and lakes.
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.
