Among Giants stirred my emotions like only a few other movies have done. Hidden deep, and I mean deep in the contrast of the yorkshire countryside and Ray's last chance at a meaninfgul relationship is the perfect view that only a Giant could see. By scaling the heights of the towers Ray unconsiuosly is living his view of life: robust with feeling, is a setting that few others can survive in. By adding the love intrest of Gerry he comes close to fulfilling his vision. But life is uncertain as well as unfair. Gerry's and Ray's emotional unfulfillemnt plays upon the heart like a violin. For a while Ray is at peace and like the real world life is "not always" bad. This should be the case at least once for all of us.

I bought this movie around 3 years ago, I thought is was a very watchable movie that takes place in Australia, I have always been a big fan of Rachel Griffiths, the story is where she manages to get hired on a crew of workers painting Power Line Towers that are contracted to finish the job with a dead line, the crew is working under the table for one of the Power Company officials. The story has a good love interest with her and the Crew chief, has a great nude scene while on an off duty day inside an abandoned Cooling Tower, with water dropping down on the couple from a height inside the tower, at the time I bought this movie, I wasn't able to get it on DVD, I purchased a copy on VHS. I recommend this movie for any adult to watch.

I watched this movie for Rachel Griffiths -- be sure to see her in Blow Dry -- but was pleasantly surprised by Pete Postlethwaite's performance. This film is a bit uneven, wandering back and forth between danger-thriller and stand-offish romance, but interesting.
