Werner Herzog's documentary film about the "Grizzly Man" Timothy Treadwell and what the thirteen summers in a National Park in Alaska were like in one man's attempt to protect the grizzly bears. show more..
A great documentary and one of Werner Herzogs' best ever. Grizzly Man tells the story of Timothy Treadwell who "lived" with bears for more than 13 years documenting them himself on film with the occasional company of his girlfriend Amie Huguenard. Timothy is a strange yet likeable character and though his own footage we see how much he loved animals and passing that passion on to younger generations.
This story ends in tragedy after an overdue stay in the Alaskan wilderness. Brown Bears are one of the most dangerous animals on Earth and particularly so just before hibernation season which is when Timothy gets eaten by one.
