“A fun and intelligent suspense comedy. A unique work of art. A dark dimension”. (Haarez newspaper, Israel)
“Fun to watch, great actors, a marvelous movie!” (GLZ Radio, Israel)
"One of the smartest, most purely enjoyable Israeli pics in years, "Giraffes" has fun with the self-referencing, meta-cinema concept but never makes too big a deal out of it. By turns sexy, farcical and mysterious, pic boasts a polished look and a very appealing cast in a tale that can travel more easily than most Middle Eastern fare." (Variety, ken Eisner – 25/6/03)
