Brother Bear

An Inuit hunter transforms into a bear and must find a way to change back with the help of a talkative cub.


Why watch this film?

Every once in a while, Disney bets on very specific cultures to delve into their animations. Hawaiian culture is present in 'Moana', South American in 'The Emperor's New Groove', Mexican in 'Viva: Life is a Party' and, finally, indigenous in 'Brother Bear'. This last animation, commanded by the debuting directing duo Aaron Blaise and Bob Walker, tells the story of an indigenous man who turns into a bear. Although the movie has some nonsense that doesn't make sense and an infantilization of the discourse in unnecessary moments, 'Brother Bear' brings an unexpected beauty to the screen, with the redemption journey of this indigenous man with the nature around him. The good voice work of Joaquin Phoenix ('Joker') also helps to set the tone, as well as some well-fitted jokes from the reindeer that appear from time to time. It's not a Disney dark movie as good as 'Treasure Planet' or 'Atlantis'. However, 'Brother Bear' still has plenty of room to move, make you laugh and give you goosebumps.
