A film to awaken your soul,
This review is from: The Bear [DVD] (DVD)
One of the most breathtaking films I've ever seen, certainly the best 'from an animal's perspective' type film ever made. How the filmmaker's got the bears to act as they do in the film I've no idea, but they have really captured some stunning moments with the bears here. Even more impressive is the fact that this film was done before the advent of CGI animation, so everything you see here was done for real. The little bear cub is probably the cutest real life animal seen on film you'll ever see. The scenery in the film is also absolutely breathtaking and just adds to the impact of the film. There are a couple of moments that might not be quite suitable for young children, but this is one of those few films that really captures the beauty and awesomeness of nature and wildlife and I for one felt spiritually enriched for watching it. This is a film that has stood the test of time and I don't think will ever age or become irrelevant. I don't think you can get higher praise than that.
