Village Voice
With potentially lethargic materials, Biniez has made a quiet, intent, involving film, a moony-innocent urban alienation fairy tale of bashful ogre and village beauty--and it never quite crests. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
The problem is that the film also refuses to move beyond a glacial pace, and its choice to go slow-and-low doesn't scream art-house aesthetic so much as unintentionally sluggish. For such a small character study, that decision ends up being a doozy of a deal breaker. Full Review
Deborah Young
The Hollywood Reporter
The film is impeccable but distant, lacking in spontaneity and not very original. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Though it takes time to find its courage and heart, Gigante, like its oversized hero, merely has a slow, shy way of doing things. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
As unpretentious as it is perceptive, Gigante is a gem. Full Review
