Set not so long ago in a distant land, Two Brothers is the story of twin tiger cubs -- one shy and gentle, the other, bold and fierce -- who are born among the temple ruins of an exotic jungle, but are one day separated by fate. The bold brother is sold off to a circus, where homesickness and living in a cage rob him of his spirit.

The shy cub becomes the beloved companion for the governor's lonely young son, until an accident forces the family to give him away to a man who resolves to break his gentle nature and turn him into a fighter for sport. When they are fully grown, the brothers find themselves reunited--but as forced enemies pitted against each other.

  • 5 stars "I'm 61 and this movie brought tears to my eyes. The 5 year old girl that was also watching was sad and afraid. I almost turned it off but as the movie went on i was glad i didn't. If a movie doesn't make you sad, afraid or laugh then it's not a good one. The lesson learn is there are good and bad people. At the end the little girl said she wanted to be a good person when she grew up and also said that she wanted a baby tiger for a pet . I said but then you'll be a bad person. She went off to think about it. If humans don't use wild animals for sport, for show (zoos) or keep them for pets then they could live in peace.
