Fund raiser screening of Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Two Brothers" at the Zoo

Category : events

"There will be a charity screening of 'Two Brothers' on the 10th & 11th Dec 2004 at 6.45pm at the Singapore Zoo. This show will not be released in Singapore. Interested parties can get their tickets at SISTIC outlets. All proceeds will go to the Wildlife Conservation Fund."

The movie has received enthusiastic reviews, like this viewer in the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) webpage; see the Teaser and the Trailer.

Two Brothers is directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, who also made Enemy at the Gates (2001), Seven Years in Tibet (1997), The Bear (1989) and Name of The Rose (1986). The movie was shot in Cambodia, Thailand and France. And in one scene a toddycat makes an appearance!

Synopsis - (adapted from IMDB): The film follows the adventures of twin tiger cubs - the shy and gentle Sangha and the bolder Kumal. Born among the temple ruins of a jungle they are separated by fate. Kumal is sold to a circus, where he is robbed of his spirit but Sangha becomes the beloved companion of the governor's lonely young son. A accident forces the family to give Sangha and the new owner resolves to break his gentle nature and turn him into a fighter for sport. Reunited when fully grown, the brothers are pitted against each other as enemies.

See the Official Site and IMDB listing. The photos used here are from the trailer.
