Trivia

Bernardo's emotional final scene with his grandmother was caught in the first take. Director Miguel Albaledejo asked his young actor David Castille to do a second take because a fly was buzzing around in the background but Castille refused as he was so emotionally drained by the scene. The fly was removed digitally. See more »

A Breathe of Fresh Air
21 June 2005 | by (China) – See all my reviews

It is good to see a movie neither 'demonize' nor 'victimize' gay people. This is an extraordinary movie about everyday relationships of ordinary person , some of whom happen to be bears.

The characters in this film are flawed one way or another. But that's part of the charm: they all have their own problems like everyone else of us have and they are dealing with these problems like we all have to. Unlike many 'gay-themed' movies which focused on 'shock value', this movie is free from bitter or self-pity. It goes back to the basic friendship and family connection which is so brilliantly portrayed.

I adore the bubbly attitude the movie holds. When bad things happened,drugs, jail, disease, people in this movie just deal with the bad fortune the simplest way. no mess, no fuss.

It's clean and shinny , it's a breathe of fresh air from Europe.
