Overview
Few films have captured the raw essence of the wild like director Jean-Jacques Annand's THE BEAR. With jaw-dropping animal performances, spectacular mountain vistas and timeless lessons of nature, the DVD release of this beloved tale is sure to thrill old and new fans alike.

Set in the majestic mountains of British Columbia in 1885, THE BEAR centers on a precocious bear cub and an old grizzled Grizzly as they struggle to endure the harsh wilderness and survive their deadliest foe - man. An unrelenting battle of strength, wits, and ultimately character is at hand, and there is no predicting the outcome when two of nature's greatest killers face off.
