The sex and filial troubles of 308-pound persons are not exactly common. But Matthiesen has evoked both the pathos and courage in these troubles, and, with the help of this reticent giant, explores them enticingly.
Not exactly a movie about lurid sex tourism, though coming awfully close, the film does risk credibility at times with a protagonist so out of touch, that he seems to hardly have a clue about the difference between hookers and potential housewives.
Matthiesen and his cast have created a believable space, and that ultimately helps give Teddy Bear the tension of a fine suspense film once Kold sits down across the kitchen table from Steentoft to speak his mind at last.
It's only a slight exaggeration to say Kold gives what may be the performance of the year -- one that not only offsets the movie's momentary dips into self-conscious quirkiness but adds a genuine sweetness to the proceedings.
