Cheap and sentimental

A BEAR NAMED WINNIE is a cheap and sentimental Canadian TV movie about the true-life origins behind A.A. Milne's WINNIE THE POOH. It turns out that the original Winnie - aka Winnipeg - was originally a Canadian black bear, saved by a Canadian soldier and eventually transported to London Zoo during WW1, which is where Milne saw her. This low budget production is interesting for the cast alone, although it's very cheaply staged and unconvincing at times. Michael Fassbender puts in a good effort early in his career and Gil Bellows, Aaron Ashmore, Stephen Fry and David Suchet all offer their contributions.

A better than average animal picture

I've already nitpicked about a few minor errors. But on the whole this is a pretty accurate, well produced and heart tugging movie that explores a little known tidbit of Canadian history. CBC hopes it will become an annual Christmas favourite. Interesting they cast David Suchet and Christopher Fry rather than Canadian actors. Do they perhaps want star names to help foreign sales? Okay, the ending is a little drippy. But again, this isn't a documentary but a fuzzy feel good animal movie and in that genre, it works well. Again hats off to CBC for fulfilling its mandate to produce original Canadian drama. (FYI-I meant to vote 8 but accidentally hit 9. It's very good but not that good.)

A tender, charming, and warm family movie

'A Bear Named Winnie' is a movie made for TV - and it pretty much shows on its production values and the treatments of its story. Still, the film turns out to be a tender, cute, charming, and warm family movie with splendid performance from Michael Fassbender.
