About this book

Jean-Jacques Annaud's latest film is the story of two tiger cubs captured during a hunt in Cambodia in the 1920s. One of the cubs is adopted by a little boy, the son of a colonial family, while the other is taken away and trained to perform in a circus. The film charts the fate of these two tigers, separated at birth, as they come together again at an organized fight, recognize each other, and then take flight together. This book provides insights into the spiritual beliefs, myths and superstitions associated with the tiger, as well as discussion on how they have evolved, how they live in the wild, and the dangers now facing them. This book is stunningly illustrated with stills from the film, among them shots of the marvellous scenery of Angkor and the Cambodian villages where the film is set, as well as many historical images of the tiger.
