A surprisingly good movie, unexpectedly exceeded all my expectations and put me on speechless. It was inspired by the Oscar Wilde story which portrays two English boys who are suspended from their school for misbehaving. They are inherited from the poor family which led them to work for a local scrap dealer. After sometime the things changes between them and decides to move in different directions... read more

13 year old Arbor and his best friend Swifty, both excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, meet Kitten, a local scrapdealer and begin collecting scrap metal for him using a horse and cart. Swifty has a natural gift with horses while Arbor emulates Kitten - keen to impress him and make some money. But when Kitten begins to favour Swifty, leaving Arbor hurt and excluded, a wedge is driven between the boys. Arbor becomes increasingly greedy and exploitative, increasing the tension between them, and leading to a tragic event which transforms them all.

"26.2. Elämää se vain on. The Selfish Giant on yksi viime vuosien onnistuneimpia elokuvia. Inhottavan realistinen tunnelma on kuin dokumentista ja pahaa enteilevä surullinen loppuratkaisu saa melkein silmät kosteiksi. Jonkun laista neorealismia tämä lienee kaiketi?"
