The Bear (1994) [Short]

France (MIFF 1995 , Fiction)
Director: Bernard Nissile

Set amidst the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd, The Bear takes us into the backstage world of a struggling actor the man who plays the bear of the title in a top drawer production of A Winter's Tale. The unwanted anonymity afforded him by his rote is reflected in his life offstage, where he remains just as anonymous to most of the cast and crew-or has someone set about finding the man in the mask? An intriguing and captivating tale.
