THE BEAR is a sheer triumph of cinema in the wild! Notable for its stunning cinematography, minimal dialogue, and outstanding animal performances, master director Jean-Jacques Annaud's (Quest for Fire, Seven Years in Tibet, The Name of the Rose, Enemy At the Gates) astonishing tale of wilderness survival has thrilled and charmed audiences and critics all over the world. Set in 19th-century British Columbia, THE BEAR follows the story of a young cub and an adult grizzly as they join forces to survive the perils inherent in their mountain habitat. With each passing obstacle, the two bears further develop a friendship that can only make them stronger – but will it be enough for them to overcome their most deadly enemy? An adventure story with heart and humanity, THE BEAR remains a breathtaking and powerful experience decades after its original release and proves itself an "impressive" (Roger Ebert) film to celebrate again and again.
