The bears escape during the transport and on bicycles and motorcycles arrive to the school, where they scare the cleaning lady and the janitor.

Childrens circus fantasy
14 April 2002 | by hazelfreemanSee all my reviews

A children's film in which performing bears provide the biggest part of the excitement. Like so many Eastern European films of this era, there isn't much of a real plot.

Basic slapstick stuff really.
