"I fight with the giants" — it is a fantasy drama produced by the famous Director, screenwriter and producer Chris Columbus in 2017-the year of the explanation of indie comic by Joe Kelly and H. M. Ken Niimura (the same tandem involved in the adaptation to the artistic statement). The budget of the establishment amounted to little more than 15 million dollars, so the project almost without any reservation can be considered independent (even if that the creation was attended by filmmakers from Belgium, Britain, China and USA). And even if this is quite small for today's standards, the budget has managed to gather quite the impressive cast, which included in itself the star of "Avatar" and"Guardians of the Galaxy" Zoe the Saldanha, winner BAFTA "Satellite" Jennifer El (however, here it appeared the status of invited guests), Imogen Poots, once listed in the a list of the most talented young Actresses after starring in "28 weeks later". And the main role was awarded the rising star Madison wolf.

Character wolf name is Barbara Thorson. In my school it is an outcast, so is very very strange. Yeah and look it is puzzling, in features ears on the Hoop, which Barbara wears on head and does not remove even in your sleep. Barbara lives in house Bank with brothers older sister (Imogen Poots), who wears them a challenging job that absolutely not much appreciated boss. The elder sister is not only contains younger brothers and sister, but and took all responsibilities home. And because of this almost does not pay attention to Barbara, and already almost closed in itself, inventing for themselves a private world where she fights with giants saves people from them. Newcomer school counselor Mrs. Molly (Zoe Saldana) tries to find out what happened to Barbara gets testy rebuff that makes it clear that Barbara able to control yourself... And meanwhile things are moving in the direction of something terrible and tragic.

And first and foremost I would like to note a rather convulsive and the tense atmosphere of the film, which allows even subconsciously, to feel the drama of the picture and a sense of something impending, something dangerous, something devastating is growing as a snowball. You can select and that the main character is formed an ambiguous attitude. With one side Barbara more and more manifest psychological problems, with the other hand feel sorry for her, because it is a dive into a fantasy world was the only chance to disengage from the transferred loss in childhood. Another distinctive pattern parameter "I fight with the giants" — is a visual schedule. Like it is combined with our reality, but any viewer is perfectly aware that the appearance of the giants — it's a metaphorical illustration of fantasy Barbara. And in the latter case, "I fight with the giants" identified with the tapes "Bridge to the Terabithia" and"Voice of monster", which earned a well-deserved audience and critical sympathy.

A separate paragraph should talk and for acting incarnation of the characters. For Madison wolf, much has been said above and the General opinion have you can make and as a Subtotal it is necessary to add that the girl really has a future, are important to getting the right projects and not get bogged down in any one role, because dramatic talent in Madison definitely visible. Properly joined in the overall concept of the picture and Zoe Saldana, like was this relaxed, quite unlike the his heroine from "Guardians of the Galaxy", but the look in the words clearly, it was obvious that she is genuinely worried about Barbara. A little sorry for Imogen Poots. Once she has filed such high expectations and Madison wolf now, but today, Poots plays independent projects and not always the lead roles. A secondary role at her in "I fight with the giants", but however, no complaints to the embodiment of the image there: the depth of the drama is, the flow of the heroine's character to the viewer also available, that you can enter that the role of Imogen in positive piggy Bank. And impossible to forget Sidney Wade and Rory Jackson, one of the young Actresses who became successful discovery casting.

"I fight with the giants" well-made drama that openly tells everyone that should definitely pay attention to his family and loved ones, because they are sometimes need to particularly children who are on a turning point between childhood and youth. And again would like to emphasize that the audience that came the soul tape "Bridge to the Terabithia" and"Voice of monster", then "I fight with the giants" you have to watch.

The beginning of the film very strange. The girl with the Bunny ears on the head runs through the forest sets an unclear trap for the obscure giants. Barbara (the main character) lives in world where there are giants that threaten all of humanity. In this world there is a baseball player Kowalski, who founded the order of the defenders of the giants.

In conversation with the school psychologist Barbara says, "the Giants — this is hatred." Fear of the second floor becomes understandable after a conversation with a psychologist. this fear creates the world of giants. Older sister says Barbara: "I don't want to see you go mind." Barbara childishly perceives their fears. She thinks if something is not invent (1-she always mixes marmalade, jam and sequins; 2-looking for dead rats; 3-does anyone understood the trap of the wood and fishing nets), then you will die for all mankind.

Traps giants — this is a separate issue about life hacks that hit the whole Internet. Lifehacks do all well-known bloggers, and this theme snuck in movie. Barbara is very resourceful in "struggle" with the giants — this is a real life hack for children who believe in the miracle. This is a tale for girls who grew up on the Barbie dolls. Child very difficult to admit their fears. Barbara — the dreamer, the remaining one with the impending tragedy. To understand myself, Barbara helps the school psychologist.

The school psychologist helps Barbara to admit the inevitable... Psychologists help people recognize the events as they have conversation. The producers of this film — Belgium UK. They raise hot topics: "the role of the psychologist in the consumer society", "life hacking bloggers", "what is death and life in the 21st century?".

Overall impression: "When childhood ends? When we understand this? Or when not missing something?.."

All not as easy as it seems on first glance. Fantastic here are a few of the most part it is a reality. Here there is the giants, but as and tales, either. Not will be no battles, the film is cheating, but can this feature?

It so happened that main character Barbara is experiencing not the best times for child. Have it has almost no friends home too not all so smoothly. But still it imposed an excessive burden, and is for her years! She you need to constantly protect the town from the giants, that they are unable to destroy all live on your way. The only way if this mission is to protect people from the terrible monsters? How you know there are no fantasy. And what is it then? That drama, each of us, but faces this issue girls. And nothing can change... and seeing the half you understand the secret, , and details that slip on the film come together in one accord. A character was not only a rich imagination, but and strong in spirit. To help girl comes to the school psychologist Mrs. Molly (Zoe Saldana), it helps the girl to find yourself, although if you take in consideration the plot, then overall, we see these two characters. The rest just details. The girl is rude, cutting, short and not going to let anyone in your world. Is it possible to understand it? It is! It not satisfied with this world, here she lives his. But cute Bunny ears — not only an echo of childhood, but and its uniqueness.

Visual component is definitely the strong side of the picture, in compartment with the camera work is a pleasure. But will go you when the story line is not that you expect. Who are the giants? Hatred? Indifference? Anger? Indifference? Disease? Each of the us grapple with such "giants". Not able to fully realize the full potential of the comic book "I kill giants". Sad movie the first in the end, I cried...
