A sheer triumph of cinema in the wild, you've never seen anything like The Bear. Notable for its stunning cinematography, minimal dialogue, and outstanding animal performances, director Jean-Jacques Annaud's (Quest For Fire, The Name of the Rose) astonishing tale of wilderness survival has thrilled and charmed audiences and critics all over the world.
Set in 19th century British Columbia, The Bear follows the story of a young cub and an adult Grizzly as they join forces to survive the perils inherent in their mountain habitat. With each passing obstacle, the two bears further develop a friendship that can only make them stronger—but will it be enough for them to overcome their most deadly enemy?
An adventure story with heart and humanity, The Bear remains a breathtaking and powerful experience decades after its original release. Presented here in a special 25th Anniversary Collector's Edition from Shout! Factory, The Bear proves itself a film to celebrate again and again.
