An disgraced ex-boxer gets out of prison after serving for thirteen years. He goes back to Thailand to find his sweetheart, only to find her already dead. He has to reconcile his past while building a relationship with a daughter he never knew existed.
"A Fighter's Blues" has a very simple plot, focusing on the life of boxers. It also spends quite a lot of time with the people in the orphanage, to deliver emotional scenes that may conjure tears. I like the fact that many Thai people are cast, and Thai is spoken in some scenes as well, making it more authentic. I am a little lost as to why the orphanage staff is Japanese though, it does feel a little out of place. In summary, "A Fighter's Blues" is an adequate film that combines boxing and emotions.
