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.

What it gets right, it does brilliantly. The acting is superb, the mix of fantasy and realistic drama is sublime, and the story is haunting and fascinating in equal measure.

Issa López's Tigers Are Not Afraid will be spoken of in the same breath as The Orphanage and Pan's Labyrinth while still being able to stand on its own.

June 1, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This horrific and heartbreaking tale is given a Guillermo del Toro-like touch of magical realism and supernatural fantasy by writer/director Issa López, who, after this, should break into the boys club of great Mexican filmmakers.

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