18 years on, it still makes for weeping,
This review is from: The Bear [DVD] (DVD)
This film is absolutely beautiful. When Bambi's mum gets it: if that tugged at your heart-strings, this film will break them. The bear is so cute I'd thank it for mauling me; the scenery is stunning, in an age when cinematography wasn't the be-all it is these days; the plot is simple, but powerful, and the film's execution is so wonderful, it's stayed with me for 18 years. We're coming up to Summer now, and ideally this movie should be watched while snuggled under a warm duvet, with snacks and tissues to hand, but even in the heat, amongst the barbecues and Pimms, I defy you to watch The Bear and not feel fundamentally moved.
