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

It's difficult to say if Kellstein's approach to these difficult cultural dilemmas is meant to leave the audience to decide for themselves or if he can't figure it out either.

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

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.

A surprising and sad glimpse into an unusual and heretofore largely unknown subculture, but one that feels frustratingly aimless.

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

The audience has been delighted to spend some time with a couple of remarkable young ladies.

Todd Kellstein doesn't allow you to entirely indulge convenient (though understandable and perhaps irresistible) armchair outrage.
