The Bear - Film by Jean-Jacques Annaud
"The Bear" is an unusually involving film about animals that will give you a fresh perspective on their world.
Without any dialogue, the raw emotions of the wilderness shine through.
Sometimes less says more: a growl or a snarl can be worth a thousand words.
Without any verbal dialogue, the raw emotions of the wilderness are vivid in this segment of The Bear, a film about the actions of animals in relation to humans.
In this suspenseful part of the story, a cub is hunted by a mountain lion who shows no mercy.
Storytelling doesn't get much purer than this - a film with virtually no dialogue and not a minute that isn't fascinating,
either for the plot it pursues or the way director Jean-Jacques Annaud gets his ursine stars to do what he wants.
The story deals with a young cub who, after his mother is killed in a landslide, bonds to a lumbering male Kodiak.
The two of them then must cope with an invasion of hunters into their territory - and Annaud makes it clear whose side he's on.
Aside from stunning scenery, the film offers startlingly close-up looks at bear behavior.
They say the best actors are the ones that let you see what they're thinking, a trick Annaud manages with his big, furry stars.

The Bear has all the marks of a classic.
Lauded by animal rights groups for its respect for the integrity of all species, it manages to speak out eloquently against the senseless hunting
of wildlife without having to depict killing to make its point.
Instead, it emphasizes the ties that bind the human and animal worlds together. - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
