|This relatively obscure Brothers Grimm tale has been updated and Americanized in this 19-minute story of a deal with the devil gone right, for once. A Civil War veteran without family or prospects is propositioned by a man with a plan and a cloven hoof. The soldier agrees to stop bathing and grooming for seven years while wandering the country in a bear hide in exchange for lifelong wealth. Just when the situation seems intolerable, "Bearskin" is able to help a man who, in return, promises him one of his three daughters as a bride. From this point the story is similar to the traditional version of Beauty and the Beast. The selfish daughters balk, leaving the kind daughter to come to the aid of their father--and find reward in the end. The performances, costumes, and camera work in this "From the Brothers Grimm" series are professional and charming without being cloying. The content and pace will engage students 8 and older, and their parents. --Kimberly Heinrichs|
