    • Synopsis
    • Have you ever fall in love with the wrong person? What was the trigger behind it? What turned you on? Was everything just a farce, when you believed it was love? Who was gaining in this game? Who had the right instincts?
      “The Bear” takes you on a journey between rational and irrational, between keeping up appearances and following your basic instincts. Survival, in so many different aspects...
      Nothing is like you would expect to be for this new revival of Chekhov's play “The Bear”. The screenplay takes you back to the basic instincts of the human being. We did evolve through time, but no major factors really changed. You will be surprised to discover how in our complicated life, some important things can slip our attention, although our instincts might still be good.
      “The Bear” exhibits the story of a rather determined creditor trying to collect his debts. Is he stepping into a kind of trap? A instinctive battle of sexes of unquestionable comedy! Chekhov’s incomparable sense of humour, which is satirical, ironic, even grotesque at times, is portraying for us the ridiculous, but also the simplicity, in everyday life.
