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 an Indian 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 family movie not recommended for adults or children
9 January 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This is a rare Canadian film funded by the Canadian government that actually tries to be entertaining, no doubt due to the fact that it was a co-production with England and the United States. It also has above average production values as well, with good photography and well-dressed sequences, though there are occasionally some signs that they didn't have enough money to do anything (when the boy is dragged away for kilometers from camp by the bear, we don't see this.) Still, I don't see this movie being appropriate for kids or their parents. Parents will notice that the characters are pretty thinly written and don't grab our attention. Parents will also notice that most of the movie consists of the boy and the bear wandering place to place with no consequence, and that gets boring pretty quick. (I think kids will get bored by this as well.) And during the climax, there is some surprisingly brutal violence that might freak out younger kids. In the end, this is yet another Canadian film that explains why English Canadians for the most part will not embrace their country's film industry.
