Few films have captured the raw essence of the wild like Director Jean Jacques Annaud's (Seven Years In Tibet, The Name Of The Rose) THE BEAR. Telling the story without dialogue, using strong visual images alone to engage the spectator, the film is cleverly shot (earning a 1990 Oscar nomination for Best Film Editing) so that the story is seen from the perspective of a bear cub. Set in the majestic mountains of British Columbia in 1885, THE BEAR centres on a precocious bear cub and an old Grizzly struggling to endure the harsh wilderness and survive their deadliest foe - man. An unrelenting battle of strength, wits, and ultimately, character is at hand, and there is no predicting the outcome when two of nature's greatest killers face off. A huge international box office success, the film attracted nine million spectators in France alone and whilst instantly attractive to children, adult viewers will appreciate the striking metaphor of mankind’s innate cruelty and inability to respect nature.
