Critic Reviews for Two Lovers and a Bear
"Two Lovers and a Bear" is above all thrillingly cinematic, even when its elements of lived-in intensity and jokey fantasy refuse to coalesce.
Beautiful and thoroughly unpredictable; you never know where Nguyen is going with this story, including the chilling, sci-fi/horror direction he heads in toward the film's climax.
The beauty and absurdity (things also get harrowing) don't entirely compensate for the overheated romanticism in which the movie is grounded, but they do make "Two Lovers and a Bear" a nearly singular cinematic trek.
"I can talk to bears," Roman explains, and that's that, basically.
There's a surreal quality to Two Lovers and a Bear that gets underlined by the appearance of the Ursus maritimus of the title; DeHaan has called the movie an adult fairy tale, and that's an apt description.
Audience Reviews for Two Lovers and a Bear
This was a fantastic film and further proof Canada is really leading the charge for indie filmmaking. The two leads are great and you can see why they were so drawn to the film. I casually found this gem on Netflix and was engaged from beginning to end. The film has great strength and it comes from the script and the development of the characters. The story is full of complexity and characters who are attracted to each other by the many flaws that are holding them back. Great film and a must see. 07-05-2017.
Interesting tale, uniquely set in frigid climes, about a love affair that burns everything else from the hearts and minds of its star crossed participants. Nice.
