Tears of the Black Tiger


  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Described by Variety (5/11/01) as a "spaghetti Eastern, 'Tears of the Black Tiger' charts the exploits of doomed star-crossed lovers Seua Dum, a spirited country lad, and his city girlfriend Rumpoey. The film is a gloriously kitsch, affectionate spoofing of the cowboy film, a stylish display of colour with an infectious soundtrack to boot.
