Movie Info

Director Sergei Bodrov takes a break from his usual socio-political dramas in Bear's Kiss, a surreal fairy tale following Lola (Rebecca Liljeberg), the 14-year-old daughter of long-time circus employees, and her love affair with a shape-shifting bear who calls himself Misha (Sergei Bodrov Jr.). When her father, Marco (Maurizio Donadoni), is killed in a tragic car accident, the circus caravan travels to Spain, where several gypsy fortune-tellers explain the mysterious art of shape-shifting and the responsibilities it entails. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

This story has all sorts of fantasy possibilities, but unfortunately few of them are realized in the film.

Audience Reviews for Bear's Kiss

I really wanted (were I real?!!) to give more star but I just can't. Borin' stuff. Fairy tale for innocence- REAL innocence I mean.
