A bear cub whose mother just died has to learn how to survive in a hostile world.
This movie was an instant classic when it came to the theaters a few years back and it was great news to find it available on iTunes. This is truly great entertainment for the whole family and I cannot recommend it enought. Do yourself a favour and give it a look!
Filming these kind of animals like that....it is just Spectacular, enjoy!

"The Bear", or the original French title "L'Ours", is an underrated masterpiece by acclaimed director Jean-Jacques Annaud. The film takes place in British Columbia 1885 and is about a young grizzly bear cub, whose mother is killed in an avalanche, trying to survive on his own in the wild. He then comes across a large male grizzly who later becomes the cub's best friend and guardian. The cub gets into many different situations, some more dangerous than others.
This movie, beautifully photographed in the Dolomites, has no dialogue until the 20 minute mark. Then again, there's not much dialogue in it anyway. Instead, the film uses the visuals to tell the story, which makes it a relaxing atmospheric experience. It is definitely one of the best.
