Movie review: Mexican street children encounter the ghosts of the great the Tigers are not afraid

”Cocaine cowboys” (2006) was exciting. A magnificent documentary series on cocaine trafficking between the united states and Colombia in the 1980s. In its wake came the immensely popular Netflixserien the ”Narcos” (2015), and a number of hollywood Movies on the same theme. It seemed for a while that knarkbaserade diskbänksrealistiska spy movies from our era, struck significantly higher than digitalexplosionerna in films about James Bond, and Ethan Hunt.

at About the same time caught the tv series ”Stranger things” (2016) into a whole world. I remember just in the summer of 2016 when everywhere you turned, they all sat and watched the same thing in their tablets and mobiles: kids with bmx bikes but without mobile phones.

have merged these two themes and made Netflix of it. Why not reflect a contemporary, narkotikadrivet society – in Mexico, for example? Might complete it if knarkligorna with children and teenagers who contend with the supernatural as in ”Stranger things”? It would be brilliant.

And so it is with director Issa López's stunning ”Tigers are not afraid”. Here they meet a bunch of mexican street children it spökiga and supernatural – stuck in the middle of an ongoing narco war.

Despite the fact that the film is about people under 15 years of age receive the audience doesn't see it, which feels weird.

In the center stands the young Estrella, whose mother has been abducted by the local knarkligan. In desperation and hunger, she seeks out to a small league of orphaned young boys who live on a nearby roof. Adventures take at. Between Estrella and ligaledaren occurs soon a kind of ”White stone”-lawsuit where they start to challenge each other.

Unfortunately, this movie never dubbed with sweet voices. Netflix will not make the series of it here. Had it been white medelklassbarn in the lead roles would all look away. ”Tigers are not afraid” is hugely worth seeing, but also extremely violent, sad, and actually r-rated. Despite the fact that it is about the people under 15 years of age receive the audience doesn't see it, which feels weird. DN is to be understood not inviting the audience to violate the age restrictions, but one wishes nonetheless to as many young people as possible see this movie.

See more. Three films related to Mexico: ”Loved dogs” (2000), ”Pan's labyrinth” (2006), ”Sin nombre” (2009).
