Lars isn't your normal Polar Bear. His best friend is a seal called Robbie,
he has a duck, a rabbit and some gulls for friends and he is making waves
within Polar Bear circles because of it. But most of all Lars has a habit
of getting himself involved in some great adventures and dragging his friends
and family along for the ride.
Based upon the much-loved children's books by Dutch author Hans
de Beer, The Little Polar Bear is a cartoon for the very young.
Not many animated movies that are released in cinemas that cater
for the under six but this is one of them. Intermixing four short adventures
into its 77 minutes, none of them are too taxing and complicated for the youngsters
Lars's artic world is beautifully realised by successfully intermixing
modern computer and traditional cell animation. It has a very pleasing pastel
look and the characters are nicely animated and suitably cute.
Lars himself is a great lead character who has all the right
values of tolerance and environmental awareness to send a very subtle message
to its impressionable audience. The stories are basic and the dialogue is
simple but the movie is solely aimed at a much younger target audience. It
is a movie that adults can watch but don't expect anything too funny or exciting.
The film does work as a great introduction to cinema for the
younger viewer and at only 77 minutes they won't become too restless. The
Little Polar Bear is a nice film that does exactly what you expect it to do,
keep the very young entertained.
