Tigers (M)

The seductive, high-stakes industry of professional global sport is at the heart of Tigers; an enthralling coming-of-age drama about the considerable cost of excellence in a world where everything, and everyone, has a price tag.

In a complete rollercoaster ride, Tigers tackles the taboo subject of mental health issues in sport.

Tigers is the enthralling true story of a young Swedish football prodigy from Director Ronnie Sandhal, the screenwriter of Borg/McEnroe.

Martin Bengtsson (The Bridge’s Erik Enge, in a searing breakout performance) is considered Sweden’s most promising football talent since Zlatan Ibrahimović. At sixteen, his lifelong dream comes true: he is bought by the prestigious Italian club Inter Milan. It’s the chance of a lifetime – but – that dream comes at a very high price in terms of sacrifice, dedication, pressure and most of all loneliness, and Martin begins to question the allure of the life he yearned for.

With a unique perspective on the world of professional sports, writer-director Ronnie Sandahl (screenwriter of Borg/McEnroe) tells the true story of 16-year-old Swedish football prodigy Martin Bengtsson, adapted from Bengtsson’s autobiography “In the Shadow of San Siro”.

Taking us inside the gilded cage inhabited by top tier, rising star footballers, Tigers is a rollercoaster ride through a cutthroat world where athletes are treated like tradable commodities, that tackles the taboo subject of mental health issues in professional sport.

Winner of multiple awards including Best Film at the Busan International Film Festival 2020, Tigers is the Swedish entry for Best International Feature for the 2022 Academy Awards.
