Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Arctic Tale...
This film uses documentary footage, shot over a period of years, to piece together a fictional story of a mother polar bear and her cubs, as well as a walrus and her pup. Due to changing conditions caused by global warming, the animals are forced to adapt to an unpredictable environment. This creates scenes of wildlife in distress due to hunger and fatigue, including the deaths of two “named” characters. Some very innocuous discussions of animal mating behavior are included. Sounds of flatulence are heard while we view a walrus herd.
