Well conceived, poorly executed
15 July 2012 | by brujavuSee all my reviews

...and still, I really enjoyed it. The story was great as were the visuals. But the script was poorly written... I had the impression that I was watching a student film from the Prague Film School... understandable, because it was written in English by a non-native speaker, and had the same effect... very minimalist dialogue... which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it didn't ring true to me. And the acting was some of the worst I have ever witnessed. The main character, the girl, was extremely wooden in her delivery. It felt like she was sight-reading the script. The guy who played the bear was much better.. maybe because, as a bear, he was naturally more reserved. Only some of the very peripheral characters (like the circus ringmaster) were believable. Yet, in spite of all this, the movie really held my attention, and I really liked it. The ending was satisfactory. If I were a 12 or 13 year old girl, I think this would be one of my all time favorite movies, so it really is worth a see.
