Bear Cub posterBear Cub (Cachorro in Spanish, 2004) is the story of Pedro, a gay dentist enjoying his bachelor ways of life, living alone in a downtown Madrid`s apartment and having active sexual live spiced with drugs and wild parties. His sister is a hippie and is planning a trip to India. Her 9 years old son Bernardo has to stay with someone for the duration of that trip and this someone happens to be Pedro. At first they both did not seem very happy with this arrangement - but as time passes they get to know each other better. An incident prolongs the stay of the mother - she is arrested in India for drug trafficking, changing the two-week vacation into a time indefinite absence.

Pedro has to accept the responsibility of caring for Bernardo - which could mean changing his life a bit - being a father figure is not always easy. The young boy ( played brilliantly by David Castillo ) however is very open minded and wise - which is probably resulted from him growing up in a rather liberal environment. Up to this moment - the movie may remind you of Big Daddy or About a Boy - but it only gets better. The boys grandmother Dona Teresa enters the scene - apparently not happy with the new arrangements she is trying to get custody of Bernardo - using even blackmailing to achieve that. The story is full of twists and indeed its ending is quite surprising and open at the same time which will allow you to select the way to conclude the story.
