WHO NEEDS BEARS? [¿Para qué sirve un oso?]
Naturalist brothers Guillermo (Javier Cámara, TALK TO HER) and Alejandro (Gonzalo de Castro) play out their sibling rivalry against the backdrop of Spain's beautiful Asturias region in this eco-conscious and family-friendly comedy. In the mountain forests, Alejandro hopes to get photographic proof that bears have returned, while Guillermo, depressed about the planet's fate after discovering plants growing in Antarctica, wonders if he'll ever feel hope again. With coaxing from a plucky young nature lover and a kick in the pants from a crusty older one (Geraldine Chaplin), Guillermo snaps out of his funk. With Jesse Johnson, Oona Chaplin and Emma Suárez.
DIR/SCR Tom Fernández. Spain, 2011, color, 100 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
