Movie Info

Estrella is 10 years old, and three wishes: the first, is that her missing mother returns. And it is fulfilled; but she is dead and follows her everywhere. Terrade, Estrella tries to escape, joining a band of children orphaned by violence. He soon learns that in reality the dead are never left behind, and that when one lives in the midst of brutality and violence, though desires never go forth as the heart wishes, only warriors survive.

A scary yet sometimes fanciful story of a little girl...like a dirtied-up Guillermo del Toro flick.

López's astonishing, beautiful film remains a state-of-the-nation allegory of a different stripe.

March 9, 2018 | Full Review…

A jaw-dropping film that blends reality and the supernatural in an absolutely beautiful way. It feels like a spiritual sequel to Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone or Pan's Labyrinth, except with a more modern, realistic setting.

Tigers are Not Afraid isn't quite a masterpiece, but it does an admirable job as an international breakthrough for director Issa López.
