LARS FINDS HIS FEET
The little Polar Bear
Feature film 2001, duration 75 min.
based on the books by Hans de Beer
 
Lars, an extraordinary little polar bear, lives with his parents in the widespread landscape of the North Pole. One day, something strange happens: Lars makes friends with the seal Robbie, who saves his life. Lars' and Robbie's parents are shocked. Because polar bears normally love to eat seals. The animals start an argument. Lars, Robbie and the Walrus Sopho find a solution. The seals are to provide the polar bears with fish, and in return the polar bears let the seals be. But suddenly the peace between the animals is threatened: The seals can no longer find any fish. In an adventurous way, Lars comes to a small village, and there he meats the Inuit girl Manili, who understands the language of the animals. Manili tells Lars, that the Inuits cannot find any fish either. The animals and the people are all in the same situation... Lars, Robbie and Manili discover a black ship and manage to get on board. The ship turns out to be a gigantic swimming high tech fish catching plant. However, the three friends do not have much time to investigate.
