Jätten

11 yrs 86 minutes 2016 6.8

Jätten is the Guldbaggen awarded debut film of Johannes Nyholm. Richard, who is autistic and has severe deformities, was separated from his mother at birth. Now in his thirties, he is convinced she will come back if he only wins the Nordic championship in boules. Imagine if he could make a perfect throw and win that big trophy to show his mom. Rikard wont let his fragile physique or the judgments of his surroundings stop him. He’s got the help of his coach Roland, the gilded balls and a 50 meter tall giant. “Jätten borrows elements from both the fantasy world and  classic underdog films to tell a moving story about exclusion and community," writes Alexander Dunerfors in Moviezine.
