It´s forever my greatest childhood-film-memory.
19 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Seven years old, holding my grandmother´s hand, I saw this movie, from which I don´t remember the story; it was more of a natural drama created by the Indian jungle where the tigers live. Chendru learns about live and let live - but also about death and killing.
