    Teddy Bear

    38-year-old Dennis is built like a house. At first sight he’s a monstrously muscular bodybuilding champion, with biceps bigger than a baby’s head, but deep down he’s just a child trapped in man’s body. He lives with his domineering mother, whose unbreachable defences forbid anyone from invading their lives. Living with her is like being in prison.

    38-year-old Dennis is built like a house. At first sight he’s a monstrously muscular bodybuilding champion, with biceps bigger than a baby’s head, but deep down he’s just a child trapped in man’s body. He lives with his domineering mother, whose unbreachable defences forbid anyone from invading their lives. Living with her is like being in prison. Things take a turn for the worse when Dennis takes a trip to Thailand, causing friction in the mother-son dynamic. Mads Matthiesen expands on his own short "Dennis" – winner of the Best Short Film Award at the 2008 Berlin International Film Festival - making a moving feature on the pains of belated maturity. Gritty, affectionate and emotionally compelling, "Teddy Bear" tells the story of a man who never escaped his mother’s influence until he discovered true love and realized that breaking away is just as much a part of life as sticking together. Winner of the Directing Award (World Cinema Competition) at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. K.Th.
