Storyline

Set in the wilderness of the Kamchatka Peninsula, the land of legends and the kingdom of wild brown bears, we follow the daily adventures of five wild brown bears. A mother bear and her two young ones, an adolescent male and an experienced male leader. Each of them have their own concerns and preoccupations. The mother must feed and protect her cubs, whilst all they want is to explore the big wide world out there, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead of them. The adolescent is coming of age and must find his place in the adult world, whereas the experienced male must constantly defend his supremacy and impose his strength. Written by Polly_Kat

An amazing and intimate insight into the life of bears
12 May 2015 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Yes, there are spoilers in this review hehe.

This documentary is for all of you and your children who want to learn more about bears; for all who feel connection to nature and our little brothers and sisters. It shows the life of bears during their life-cycle throughout the year with its hardships, challenges and simple joys of being and survival.

The movie can be watched in a kind of meditative state accommodated by the smooth voice of the narrator, Kamchatka's beautiful scenery and the pleasant soundtrack.

What is different about this movie compared to all other bear movies? First, it takes place in Kamchatka and not Alaska or Canada so there are some new amazing spots such as the hot springs valley surrounded by yet frozen landscape and the great lake bears gather around to fish for salmon. Second, it is the intimate connection with the bears this movie manages to effortlessly inspire in you. While you don't exactly follow the life of one particular individual throughout the year, some "muzzles" remain a constant and a familiar presence. Moreover, the filmmakers captured and focus your attention to certain cute and adorable moments that make you relate as a member of a/the bear family. A brother and sister meeting again, playing and being happily reunited for a while. An old male hugging trees and rubbing like a little cub. And yet a sad moment of orphaned young bears stealing food from younger cubs in order to survive.

I give this movie a 9 out of 10. Some nature documentaries are very interesting but this project engages you on both intellectual and emotional level. It is also great social and educational experience for the entire family and especially little children.
