  4. Elle Johnston's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    I saw this twice (when working) and both times the rest of the cinema and myself had to stay in our seats to compose ourselves after uncontrollably weeping in the last act. The last 3rd of this film is worth every second of the build up.

  5. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    As raw and heart-breaking as Arnold's 'Fish Tank'. Breathes life into that oft overlooked kitchen-sink social realism sub-genre of British cinema. Leigh and Loach have contenders to their authorial crown.

  7. mpho3's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    "The selfish giant is the society that boxes them into poverty and offers them only limited and risky avenues for escape: the society that keeps them in these desperate, reckless spaces where they run, dodge, swerve, struggle.... This, ultimately, is the power of Barnard’s modern fable: that it is not a fairy tale, but – in its broader lessons if not its specifics – a true story." - Times Higher Education

  12. Quecandiani's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

  13. rociof's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    De esas historias que nos dejan mudos ante la avaricia humana. Combinación imperfecta entre el mundo del adulto hostil y la inocencia infantil.

  14. marinos@agxivatein.com's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    3.5. A north-England, post-industrial, and lower-class fictional ethnography---it does ring a lot of bells if you've lived in North England. Well directed, well shot, very well acted. A nice film overall.

  15. David A. Secas's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Muy buena película, grandes actuaciones, y excelente narrativa. La fotografía tiene grandes momentos, te atrapa en el entorno en el que sucede la historia. Es un drama muy hermoso, que te pasea por multiples sentimientos y te envuelve en la vida de los dos chicos y el entorno social.

  16. Sin título.'s rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Entrañable historia sobre las complicaciones derivadas de una niñez intermedia problemática donde la ambición se disfraza como rasgos de resiliencia, la nobleza acaba camuflada como amistad y el deber moral busca erráticamente colocarse sobre todas las cosas.

  17. Julio Colin's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Gran película con pocos recursos. El director lleva el ritmo adecuado durante todo el filme y jamás forza la historia. Me movió las entrañas como hace tiempo no lo hacían.

  18. MiGuanajuato's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Gran historia que se toma su tiempo para contar lo que los personajes sienten, algunas escenas están bruscamente terminadas pero no impide que se disfrute de la narrativa.

  19. cmuela's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

  20. selenartan's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Dark, realistic take on urban lower class by setting the focus on two young outcasts who are best friends and partners in crime.

  21. nein's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    Was it realistically possible? (Great movie anyway)

  23. Manuel Jerónimo Yannick's rating of the film The Selfish Giant

    "... Coming in age súbita porque no hay de otra, porque ante el gigante hay que agigantarse aunque sus madres no lo entiendan ni lo aprueben y tengan que compartir, en hermosa complicidad silenciosa, el dolor de un hijo sin remedio..." Texto completo en : http://tmblr.co/Z36bOr1G4XvtH
