Product Description

Off-beat Spanish drama about a gay dentist living the single life in Madrid. Pedro (Jose Luis Garcia Perez) decides to take on some responsibility when he offers to take care of his young nephew Bernardo (David Castillo) while Bernardo's mother travels abroad with her dope-smoking boyfriend. But when she is detained in India, Pedro soon finds himself in a custody battle with the boy's overbearing grandmother as he tries to become his legal guardian.

Format: DVD
The opening of Bear Cub shows two hairy over-weight men having sex with each other. The scene is sexually explicit and also quite tender, but most of all it shows that these men - who are so often marginalized in the wider gay community for not being attractive enough - can actually be sexual beings too. It's such a pleasure to watch a film that portrays the culture of these proudly paunchy gay men, who accept who and what they are and who refuse to buy into the chiseled gym ideal of what a gay man should be. Most of the middle-aged men in this wise, sophisticated, and sweet-natured Spanish film unashamedly believe they're sexy, and are for the most part, proud of it.
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.

This is a Spanish film from 2004 that I have taken a while to see, and I must say I found it worth the wait. It is billed as a comedy drama, but it is also sexually explicit in places and manages to wend its way into your heart, as I ruddy loved it.

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.

The film is a success on a conventional level regarding story, plot and characters and also is a treat for the gay community, above all the bear community.
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.

Probably the sweetest single gay film I've seen. This fish out of water story would have been turned into glossy, sappy glop by Hollywood, but the subtlety of writing and directing, the explicitness and acceptance of promiscuous, unglamorous gay men, and its general humor and humanity raise it well above it's slightly formulaic story.

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.
