Am I the only one who thinks this is a love movie?

The movie is full of fantasy and childishness, but I saw the shadow of love. Is it really only me who feels this way?

Sophie lives in an orphanage and is curious about many things, especially witchcraft, how similar it is to a little girl who is in love: love is so beautiful in legends, but adults will always tell you, don't fall in love early , very scary, very painful.

At first sight of BFG, can it be said to be love at first sight? BTW: How obvious is the name BFG, BF-G... It's always like this when love comes, and most of everything is chased by boys, even boys can give girls a lot of dreams, and girls also start from the beginning The fear, fear and rejection, to the last liking, following, and even accompanying... It is clearly a love drama!

In order to make the love drama more real, the director also added nine difficulties that prevent love from becoming a marriage: money, material things, status, worldliness, prejudice and so on.

Especially the part of going to see the queen, that is, meeting the parents. The two also prepared a plan (dream) for the parents to accept them. Sophie especially emphasized that BFG will also appear. And BFG's performance is so similar to the boy's first meeting with his parents!

The final ending tells us that Sophie will still marry the prince. For BFG, just obediently give Sophie a silent blessing on Giant Island...

I hate this kind of use of children's films to interpret love stories!

    Even if 90% of the giants in the world are cannibals, there are still 10% of the giants are good people. May the world always be children and always be treated with tenderness

    It's a beautiful, imaginative film, and it's a meaningful masterpiece.
