The Giant

Lonely, autistic and grotesquely deformed Rikard is convinced that the only path to his lost mother leads through victory in an international pétanque championship. Although the man almost can't communicate with his hostile surrounding, he has the assistance of a sixty-meter-tall giant in his heroic efforts. Let yourselves be enchanted by the power of imagination in this charmingly peculiar picture with a Western atmosphere, where Scandinavian realism meets fairy-tale magic.
