Knut and Friends


You’ll fall in love with Knut, the world’s most famous polar bear, in this true-life story of the adorable cub who overcame overwhelming odds to survive. Come along as a caring Berlin zookeeper takes the baby bear under his wing — feeding him by bottle, giving him tub baths and a nice cuddle, and even jumping into the water with him for a swim lesson. Contrasted with the harsh reality of life in the Arctic for a trio of polar bear newborns and the endearing adventures of two orphaned brown bears getting into all kinds of mischief, this stirring, beautifully photographed journey of family, survival and love will touch your heart.

Dove Review

This is a charming documentary narrated by the wind about a young polar bear born in captivity, a pair of orphaned brown bears and a family of polar bears in the Arctic. As the wind tells of each group’s story, he also describes the different challenges in their lives. This is an informative tale of the lives these animals live and how we as humans can help.

It is a wonderful entertaining documentary about Knut, the polar bear born in captivity and raised by his zoo keeper Thomas, and the bears in the wild. This is an educational and entertaining film that the entire family will enjoy. Dove proudly awards “Knut and Friends” the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
