Teis and Nico

Henrik Ruben Genz, Denmark, 1999

22 min.DK/Short fictionChildren's films

Perhaps the grown-ups divide each other into natives and immigrants, but Teis and his kid brother Nico agree that the Indian girl Giinjha is just lovely. A postcard with the picture from Gone with the Wind fuels romantic dreams in the high-rise blocks. Teis is head over heels in love. But what does a hopefol nine-year-old lover do, when only his little brother gets invited to Giinjha's birthday party? He clenches his teeth, combs his hair and stakes on the charm that Henrik Ruben Genz' film has plenty of.
