Depending on whether you consider a 45-minute film (Carsen & Gitte’s Movie Madness) a short or a feature, The Great Bear is either the first or second full-length movie by Danish director Esben Toft Jacobsen. Either way, he seems to be off to an auspcious start. The new film is about an 11-year-old boy who ventures into the woods to rescue his sister from a gigantic 1,000-year-old bear. And we mean gigantic. See that massive eyeball in the image above? Yeah. That thing.
Watch the trailer and read the synopsis after the jump. No worries if you don’t speak Danish — the action’s not that difficult to follow.
