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.

...an excellent work of supernatural horror with a distinctive setting and an uncompromising story.

Tigers Are Not Afraid feels like Pan's Labyrinth meets The Florida Project.

The results, depending upon how the viewer negotiates the relationship between the film's palatable fictions and harsher truths, are either uplifting or devastating. Either way, this is unmissable.

Child actors display the poise of veterans, [director] Issa López creates on multiple levels of artistic complexity and the entire production will leave you moved in a most wondrous - completely destabilizing - kind of way.

August 6, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Bluntly realistic yet shot through with fantasy elements which illuminate the way even this world looks through children's eyes, Tigers Are Not Afraid interweaves folklore with the law of the jungle.

August 3, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
