Magritte Awards Best Film and Best Director
“★★★★ DELICATE, THOUGHTFUL, AND CHARMING…The Giants - while being funny and amiable - is underpinned by a darkening sense of threat which provides a crucial source of tension throughout.”-Eye For Film
“The Giants uncannily captures the awkwardness between adolescence and the full-on teen years…BREEZY AND OMINOUS, THE FILM WILL SNEAK UP ON YOU, and look for a cameo from 1970s international It girl-turned-director Marthe Keller.”-Film Forward
“★★★★1/2 SUBLIMELY CINEMATIC. Ranks among the genre’s best, alongside Stand By Me (1986), Grave of the Fireflies (1988) and Lord of the Flies (1963).”-Simon Foster, SBS FILMS
