Boys

Nils Malmros, Denmark, 1977

86 min.DK/Feature

The boys are actually one and the same, Ole, as seen through three ages and episodes: as a small boy having a boy cousin as his house guest; as a high-school boy in abject love; and as a young stud trying to bed down a nurse. Everything is observed with sadness, wry humor and a sharp ear for colloquial youthful dialogue by director Nils Malmros in this third revisiting of his childhood city of Århus.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
