A warm, wholesome, and unabashedly homoerotic film about a gay dentist who makes a home for his orphaned nephew, Miguel Albaladejo's Bear Cub casually pulls off an amazing feat—combining innocent childhood nostalgia and graphic sexuality. This is at once an amusing, almost sentimental family drama in which a man finds his life changed by parenthood and a sexually explicit portrait of a friendly, promiscuous group of gruff, stocky, hirsute gay men. Thoroughly likable, it never resorts to sentimental cliches or moralistic epiphanies: the hero refuses a Parisian boyfriend's offer to form a two-daddies nuclear family, managing to both assume parental responsibility and preserve his freedom. In Spanish with subtitles. 99 min.
