Did You Know?


The yellow and black aircraft at the airport is a de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter, which is often used for Arctic routes on because of its short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities in addition to being able to operate out of rough airstrips. The aircraft itself (registration "C-GOGA") at one point had pontoon landing gear and was used as a float plane several years before it appeared here and is operated by the Province of Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

Too artistic for me
16 August 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of two lovers in an arctic town in Canada, whose lives are interrupted by apparently positive life changes, hideous past trauma and the appearance of a polar bear.

"Two Lovers and a Bear" shows a glimpse of what life could be like in a northern town that is permanently surrounded by ice and snow. The scene where the policeman visits Dane DeHaan, and then request unconventional backup through the radio is very funny. Perhaps you can really do that in a small town, but I cannot imagine this could happen in a big city without staff being held accountable for and someone getting fired.

The following scene that strikes a chord with me is the very last scene. I feel sorry for them, but yet they chose such a path of action perhaps out of foolhardiness. To sum up, the film is pretty uneventful but beautiful.
