As the family navigates their relationship to their home and local kids engage in forbidden games, various interpersonal conflicts that arise lead to a powerful crescendo.
“It helps that Schnicer’s screenplay is so elegant and concise, and that it’s brought to life by the uniformly excellent performances, Ivan Gierasinchuk’s textural, tactile photography, Nahuel Palenque’s layered, seething sound design, and the repetitive, Philip Glass–like motifs of Cruclax and Santiago Palenque’s fine modernist score.”—Jessica Kiang, Variety
“Tigre begs us to consider what it means to be preoccupied with the significance of material markers of legacy when the corporeal and relational facts of one’s lineage remain obscured.”—Lydia Ogwang, Cinema Scope
