Audience Reviews for Bear Story (Historia de un oso)


The winner of Best Short Animated Film at the Oscars and my favorite. A bear street performer has a box activated/automated by a coin which tells a Bear Story to a young bear through its clockwork mechanisms. The story about a father bear captured and forced to work in a circus and his efforts to get home to his family is excellent! Exciting and sad. The CGI animation makes everything look like real world materials (not plastic) in an old-fashioned child's doll house with clockwork inner motion. Chile and Brazil had a good year at the Oscars.
