Reviews

Engelse animatiefilm uit 1989 naar het bekende boek van Roald Dahl. De kleine Sofie woont in een weeshuis. Op een nacht wordt ze door een reus meegenomen naar reuzenland. Gelukkig is het een GVR (grote vriendelijke reus), maar er zijn ook slechte mensenetende reuzen. De Speelfilmencyclopedie geeft drie sterren: 'Zeer geslaagde matineelange animatie-versie van Roald Dahls, gelijknamige beroemde kinderverhaal. (...) Enkele angstwekkende scènes maken de film ongeschikt voor gevoelige jonge kinderen.'
