Storyline

A young Estonian goes to the Siberian Taiga to live as a hunter in a remote forest hut. He hopes to find his true self far from civilisation. The natives he meets introduce him to the myths of the north. The first is a young village teacher who wants to be a good wife to him. The second is a wild and untameable native who becomes his mythical bear-woman. When he accidentally kills a great black bear, his own shadow-creature, he burdens himself with guilt. However, he is given a chance of finding his inner balance. A romantic drama with mythical elements and breathtaking landscapes. Written by Anonymous

This film is like super!
28 December 2002 | by ntsuSee all my reviews

It's one of the best movies I have ever seen. I really recommend you to watch it. Karu süda is not just some Hollywood junk. It has a deep meaning hidden somewhere in the movie. 10points out of 10 :)
