Striking cinematography and outstanding special effects make this multiple Oscar-nominated adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s children’s story an unforgettable visual feast.
Lost in the jungle as a baby and brought up by a wolf pack, Mowgli lives a carefree life in the jungle with his animal friends, not knowing anything of his past, until one day he stumbles upon a village full of people. Captured by frightened villagers, he is taught about the man’s world and befriends a young girl, Mahala. Between them they discover a trove of treasure in the jungle, but to get it Mowgli must first fight his arch-enemy - the tiger Shere Khan.
Sabu turns in arguably the best performance of his career as the semi-feral jungle boy Mowgli, in this visually striking and adventurous film. The Korda brothers’ adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel received four Oscar nominations: Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Special Effects and Best Music.
