Two Lovers and a Bear

"Between its appealing leads and a surplus of other pleasures -- the super-crisp imagining of the Nunavut community of Apex, for one -- it's also pretty hard to resist." - Georgia Straight

“The bear is Agee, a trained polar bear with 20 years’ experience stretching back to the 1996 film Alaska. Gordon Pinsent provides the beast’s voice; grumpy, tired, often hungry.

“The lovers, meanwhile, are played by Dane DeHaan and Regina-born Tatiana Maslany. Their characters, Roman and Lucy, are living in a small town in the Far North (the movie was shot in Iqaluit), clearly in love but also struggling with personal demons that eventually drive them to flee the town and into an unforgiving, lunar-like wilderness landscape.

“Two Lovers and a Bear is a richly philosophical tale. The talking bear discusses karma with Roman (he alone seems able to understand the animal), while hidden in the end credits is a quote from Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, ‘Time expands, then contracts, all in tune with the stirrings of the heart.’” - National Post

"There's a surreal quality to Two Lovers and a Bear that gets underlined by the appearance of the Ursus maritimus of the title; DeHaan has called the movie an adult fairy tale, and that's an apt description." - Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
