A heart warming surprise
26 December 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a young man who grew up with a television show about a bear.

The story quickly unfolds to a surprising path, and it is very engaging and emotional. It is a sweet tale of a young man finding his way in a new world, and the immense support he receives around him. The film could have taken a dark and depressing tone, but instead it keeps a light tone most of the time, with serious scenes inserted at the right intervals. It is a very heart warming story.
