Pedro (José Luis García-Pérez) is an attractive and mature "bearish" dentist who lives a cosmopolitan life in Madrid. He's a well adjusted, kindly, and independent kind of guy, who thinks nothing of having his two best friends have sex in his bed while he takes a shower - maybe even participating in a threesome. His older sister Violeta (Elvira Lindo), a rubber-mouthed ex-hippie, leaves her son Bernardo (David Castillo) to stay with Pedro when she impulsively decides to take a two-week jaunt to India with her latest boyfriend.
Things don't work out exactly as planned for Violeta, so Pedro is left to become a temporary guardian of this world-wise and surprisingly cosmopolitan young boy. Bernardo is a hip, young urban sophisticate, totally in sync with Pedro and very aware and accepting of the fact that Pedro is gay, and even that he is HIV Positive.
Soon the two become totally enamored of each other forming a strong attachment. Their life together seems to be going well - Bernardo cooks for Pedro, and loves all his fellow bear friends.Read more ›
It is the story of Pedro (Jose Luis Garcia Perez), who likes Bears, his family know and accept his predilection. His `forward thinking' sister is going on a fifteen day holiday to India to indulge her passion of holistic hippydom. Whilst she and her 'Significant Other' are away she asks her brother to look after his nephew `Bernardo' (David Castillo). No sooner has the little lad settled in than his estranged Grand Mother turns up seeking to be a part in her grand sons life (at all costs).
The story then starts to take a few turns which would be plot spoilers to reveal. There was some strong adult content from the start and interspersed throughout, which is why it has the certification. This is not a love story but a human one, and one of the nastier side of human nature as well, but it is all the more real for that. I found it to be totally engrossing and was hooked from about scene one, everyone puts in a brilliant performance and the time (95 mins) just flew by. I actually didn't want it to end I was that caught up in the stories.
It is in Spanish with some French and a smidgen of English, and be warned some of the exchanges are so fast you will need the subtitles, unless your Spanish is excellent.Read more ›
The bears are portrayed as loving and friendly; 100% gay and also 100% masculine.
I would strongly recommend the film to any bear based solely on the bear-to-bear action in the first 45 seconds of the film.
An aging hippie mom brings her son to stay with her gay brother while she goes off to India with her new lover. While there she's thrown in prison on drug charges, and the man and boy slowly form a tender father/son like bond. Meanwhile the boy's estranged grandmother schemes to use this as a chance to force her way into the boy's life. While that might sound slight or familiar, the details, humanity and fine performances transcend to make something richer, funnier and deeper.

Actually, I saw very few bears in 'Bear Cub'. The picture on the cover suggests a happy go lucky movie of comfortably overweight men having a good time. Read morePublished on 23 Nov. 2009 by Bart
