Great Grandad’s Tall Tales - The Bear / Min oldefars historier - Bjørnen

Tone Mygind Rostbøll (DK, 2016)

Min oldefars historier - Bjørnen (Tone Mygind Rostbøll, DK, 2016)

Theodor is pretending to be a bear and asks Great Grandad if he has ever come across a real live bear. Great Grandad recounts his ‘Fatso tale’ – about the time when, as a boy, he and his pal, Fatso, came across a real bear when they were in the forest picking blueberries. Theodor wants to meet a real bear too. He ventures into the forest alone, looking for bear tracks. He finds plenty of blueberries, large animal tracks and claw marks on the tree trunks. Convinced he has spotted a real-life bear, Theodor makes a run for it, finally climbing up a tree to safety – but don’t bears climb trees? Luckily, Great Grandad comes to the rescue and helps Theodor down from the tree. The day ends with a mug of hot chocolate, which tastes all the better after you’ve been on an exhausting bear hunt.

Registration of festival participation and awards

The Danish Film Institute registers international festival participation and awards for Danish films, though primarily for films whose festival distribution is handled by the Danish Film Institute, and primarily in connection with festivals prioritised by the Danish Film Institute.
