Enchanting children's film
5 June 2002 | by frojavigdisSee all my reviews

In a time of video-game based cartoons, "Der Kleine Eisbär" (The Little Polarbear) stands out as a pure and sweet movie for children which is, at the same time, exciting and not at all wishy-washy.

The basis of the story is the small bear's relationship with another young animal, a walrus. The two become close friends, to the chagrin of their elders. The two societies do not mix (while it never directly says so, it is, of course, known that polar bears prey on walruses). Therefore, the elders decide to allow the two youngsters to continue to play in exchange for a tithe of fish.

There is no violence in the film, and yet it raises thoughts and questions about justice and tolerance of others. Also, the movie is based on one story of many from a Dutch author, so it allows children to continue the adventures of the little polar bear through the books.
