Storyline

Martin is one of the most promising football talents Sweden has ever seen. At sixteen, his lifelong dream comes true when he is bought by one of Italy's most prestigious clubs. Yet that dream comes at a very high price in terms of sacrifice, dedication, pressure and - most of all - loneliness. Martin begins to question whether this is actually the life he yearned for. "Tigers" is a life-and-death rollercoaster ride through the modern-day football industry. With a unique perspective on the world of professional sports, Ronnie Sandahl tells the true story of 16-year-old football prodigy Martin Bengtsson. A coming-of-age drama about a young man's burning obsession in a world where everything, and everyone, has a price tag.

Good movie with a Nice plot :)
30 January 2021 | by Affe3See all my reviews

An actual good story about how something you'd think is your dream actually becomes a nightmare. Imo all the actors are recent, but the actor who plays martin bengtsson to me really stands out. His emotions are clear to see just looking at his eyes. My main problem with this movie however is that it isn't historically correct. The story takes place in the early 2000's. But the movie is modern witch throws you off a bit. Nevertheless it is still one of the better swedish movies ive seen.
