Storyline

Out in the wilds, an aged man tells his grandchildren a tale of his own youth. After his mother dies, his usually-absent father, whom he barely knows, takes him into these same wilds to hunt for a grizzly. They find a mother bear with two cubs. The hunters capture the cubs, but the grizzly captures the lad. Somehow, boy and bear bond and trek across the forest with dad and a First Nations friend on their trail. After a while, the boy figures out where he and his new mother are going: toward her cubs. Rifles, dogs, hunters, bear, cubs, father, and son are headed for a rendezvous.

A Bearific family film, very exciting.....the bears are amazing!
2 January 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Old Harry (Richard Harris) is telling his grandchildren a campfire story out in the woods. And, what a tale it is! When Harry was young, his mother died and his father, Tyrone (Bryan Brown) was a world adventurer who took months to come back and retrieve his son. After their reunion, Tyrone suddenly announced his intent to capture a grizzly bear! Father and son, along with a ragtag team of somewhat seamy volunteers, go out in the woods and try to do the deed. But, low and behold, when the party captures two grizzly cubs, the mother bear captures young Harry! Thinking he is her new offspring, Mother Grizzly keeps close tabs on Harry, preventing an early escape. Will Harry ever see his father again? This film is just, well, bearific! The human actors do a great job but the bears in the film are beyond compare. One truly can walk hand in hand with a grizzly and experience what this young boy did every step of the way. The scenery is lovely, too, making the film a great pleasure to watch. If you have any animal lovers in your household, or even if you just want to stir up some excitement for a family film night, you could hardly do better than this movie. It is a great achievement in cinema for audiences of all ages, pawsitively marvelous. Don't hesitate to look for the film at the library or video store, today, tomorrow or very soon. Your family will clap for joy at the film's end.
