'Große Stern' is a portrait of Paddington Bear superimposed over a touristic scene depicting the Große Stern / Siegesäule in Berlin. The bear is friendly and flexible and a good figure around which to form regional / nationalistic identification. The newish PB movies present a picture of London / Great Britain that is contemporary and inclusive as well as nostalgic and nationalistic. In 'Große Stern', the star of the movie has decamped to Berlin.
