Possibly The Best 'Animal Film' Ever

Almost 20 years later, this remains the best of "animal" movies I've ever seen - where there is little dialog and animals dominate the screen. The amazing photography with the bears, the stunning cinematography overall and the great landscape (British Columbia) all make this a visual treat. Even better, it's an interesting story and has remained that with each of the viewings I've had of this film since discovering it in the mid '90s.

It's a solid adventure story, and the little bear in here is lovable. The "bad guys" (the hunters) aren't really all that bad, either. The bears' performances are fascinating, simply amazing. It must have taken incredible patience to film this movie.

Outside of a couple of "damns," there is no profanity and, I would think, is a great film for any age person to see. Highly recommended.

An Oscar worthy performance by animals

I saw only a small part of this movie on TV recently but found it compelling enough to spend an hour on the Internet trying to find out its title and then rented it as 'The Bear'.

It was worth the effort. What a refreshing change from the parade of Hollywood block busters. An orphaned bear cub is the star along with an adult Kodiak bear. They are being hunted by two men with guns and dogs in a breathtaking never ending landscape where no dialogue is needed. Appropriately, one of the few lines of dialogue has one of the hunters refer to himself as a "stupid human".

I wondered how on earth some of the shots were achieved but not too much, the story is too compelling. "The Bear" is an enchanting glimpse into a world few people ever witness and a cautionary tale for hunters everywhere.

A movie that really cares about animals

The movie really cares about animals as the movie portrays them in a light that only an animal lover would. I should know because I love animals. Perhaps the most telling thing about the movie is it almost made from the viewpoint of a bear. The humans are part of the plot and are not the plot itself. The movie avoids two mistakes all animal movies seem to fall prey to(pun intended): silly talking animals or animal melodrama with significant roles for people. The score is perfect and the closing scene is nothing but heart warming and fulfilling.

As a scientist and as a thinking sentient being, the movie portrays bears in the same way science is beginning to. Feeling and maybe maybe thinking. The only difference between us and them is a matter of degrees (speech, tools).They have feelings and thoughts as well.
