Hello, My Movievaures! I hope you had a great week. I’m back with a new article on a TV Show that I much enjoyed: The Bear. You might say, again Vanessa, another 2022 show? Yes, but hear me out, this is not just any show. Not only has it won many awards and had great viewers reviews, but it was all worth it! Let me tell you more. But you know the drill now before let’s get to the non-spoilers part:
After the tragic death of his brother, a young and talented chef returns to Chicago to run the family’s sandwich shop. Small problem, his brother left a huge mess: a disorganized restaurant, with money issues and recalcitrant kitchen staff. Carmen, or “Carmy” as his close ones call him, will need to use all of his talents to prevent this family jewel from becoming another failure while facing grief and handling new relationships.
I wasn’t expecting much of this show. Mainly because I didn’t even know what it was about before clicking on the first episode. I was astonished by how good the experience was from the first few minutes. The Bear has a quite simple setting; most of the scenes are filmed in the Kitchen, or in grey places of Chicago. And even with that they managed to be creative in the way of filming; conveying this way all the emotions the actors perform.
Gosh, I could spend hours writing about how great the actors are in this show. I was amazed by each one of them, but of course, I cannot leave without highlighting Jeremy Allen White’s (Carmy) performance. I could sense every emotion and every thought just with his gaze. He plays the tortured, stressed chef, completely in denial of his own suffering. The other characters were also great of course. It’s a whole. And you can see each one of them in many different facets, allowing us to hate them as well as get attached to them.
In short, The Bear is worth your time. Is a great story about family, death, friendship, and the normal struggles of any business. It is also a good deep dive into the life of anyone working in a restaurant and how demanding this job can be. You need to be prepared to truly feel what you’ll see on the screen because it is quite emotionally demanding! This is all for today My Movievaures!
