    Raul Ruiz´s early film adaptation of Alejandro Sieveking´s play that depicts a group trying to survive in a dirty underworld prior to Allende’s era. The play goes on to revolve around the everyday life of three characters likened to the tigers, which reflect the unequal atmosphere in the society and the suppressed mentality of Chileans. The drunken characters of the middle-class display unjust and frustrating life in Chile. Ruiz represents the madness, ennui and displeasing on the eve of the revolution in black and white images reminiscent of French New Wave. Some scenes elaborately designed are very impressive in the film based on realistic setting unlike films made during his stay in Europe. One of the similarities between this film and his late films acquiring a sense of maturity is to describe the state of the floating being. [JANG Byungwon]

In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again. Ruiz is renowned and acclaimed worldwide, regular presence, for the past 40 years, in the major international film festivals ? nominated 4 times for the Golden Palm at Cannes, where was also jury in 2002, won the Golden Leopard in Locarno, won the Siler Bear in Berlin, won the Cesar, was nominated for the Golden Lion int Venice, won Twice the FIPRESCI Award in Montreal, was honoured in 2004 Rotterdam - ´Raul Ruiz: An Eternal Wanderer´ and also in 2007 Rome Film Festival that showcased 46 of his films.
