“A movie about an Israeliness that dreams, aspires, insists, confronts, struggles and comes to the point of defeat, and it is Green’s best, most complex, complete and touching work to date. This is a version of Israeliness we have yet to see on the screen, tender and full of longing despite its hardships.” - Haaretz
“I wanted to create a film that was in the same genre as films I grew up watching… The Goonies, Back to the Future and ET—movies that are meant for the whole family.” — Jonathan Geva, director
Ancient legends warn children about the Abulele: enormous, furry and sometimes dangerous monsters who are able to hide among the human race by making themselves invisible except to special children who are in need of a friend. Adam, a young boy grieving from the loss of his brother, discovers an Abulele living in his building. But when Adam realises that it is not the Abulele but the humans who are the real monsters, he risks everything to save his friendly giant. A resounding hit at the Israeli box office, and hailed as the Israeli answer to Steven Spielberg’s iconic E.T., this heartfelt family film celebrates the power of love and friendship.
