Movie Info

An unflinching look at Thailand's underground world of child boxers - of which there are over 30,000 - BUFFALO GIRLS tells the story of two 8 year-old girls who are professional Muay Thai prizefighters. Set in small villages throughout rural Thailand, the film chronicles these young girls' journey, one that is alternately empowering and heartbreaking, as they fight in small neighborhood arenas in order to win prize-money to help provide for their families. After many months of rigorous training and a grueling schedule of fights, Stam and Pet must ultimately fight each other for the 20 Kilo championship belt of Thailand. The cash prize that goes with it will change the winner's life forever.more

Stam, Pet and their families don't seem to think much about what they're doing. Neither does Buffalo Girls.

Kellstein gives viewers more or less the same show that the fans and gamblers get.

Tthe burning question of child safety and long-term physical effects of fists-and-feet Muay Thai boxing is all but absent.

Buffalo Girls hews close to the experience at hand, which sometimes feels a little too much like a normal leading-up-to-the-big-game Undefeated-style sports doc.

A story that, though sickly fascinating, is as crudely rendered as its images.
