Originally shot in France, and released on Europe on October 19, 1988 (and in the United States on October 25, 1989), very few people saw it. Few ever heard of it. It was directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. Here is slightly less than 3.55 minutes of a docudrama that, I promise you, will bring you to the edge of your seat as you watch it..all of the time wondering how Annaud captured the scenes he caught. Usually the stories I write and the videos I put up deal with the conservatives struggle against their political enemies, and the left's attempt to destroy the prey—us. The movie, aptly called "The Bear" was adapted from a 1916 book, The Grizzly King by James Oliver Curewood. The screenplay was written by Gerard Brach.

While you only get to see just shy of four minutes of this film, its the type of movie, when you're sitting in a movie theater, that you forget all about the box of popcorn in your lap and the soft drink in your hand. You might say it's a "bear Bambi" movie that begins with the baby bear losing his mother in a rockslide (which you don't get to see in this blip). As the cub is trying to survive, the movie flips to another scene where a large male grizzly is being pursued by two trophy hunters who want to kill and stuff him. They wound the bear, who manages to escape and meet up with the cub who tries to help the large grizzly by licking his wounds. And, of course, the grizzly takes the cub with him. The movie is 94 minutes long, so its obvious there will be no blow-by-blow accounts coming. The movie was made in 1987. It was shot in the Italian and Austrian areas of the Dolomites (although its purported to take place in British Columbia) with additional shots filmed in a Belgium zoo in 1988. The movie is still available through Amazon.com (click here). Warning: if movies like The Yearling, Old Yeller, or Bambi were too much for you, buy yourself a video about zombies or ax murderers.
