Everything bad except music and photography
5 May 2003 | by MousesnowSee all my reviews

Premise: a girl from traveling circus adopts and grows up a bear. This bear starts to transform to a human and back. Girl falls in love with him.

Impression: bad plot, cardboard characters, unbelievable relationships, artificial turns - nearly everything witnesses against this film. But to make justice, one should mention excellent music and very good photography - thanks to composer and to cameraman, I guess.
