The Truffle Hunters

Documentary


 

In the forests of Piedmont a few dedicated men and their dogs search for the prized Alba truffle.

Step into the simple world of "The Truffle Hunters" in this delightful documentary. Everything about this production is natural and a little eccentric, starting with the lack of story structure or explanation of any part of the action. Even so, the audience is left with the impression that we're party to every facet of this enduring hunt. There's much to be charmed by and the countryside is spectacular, particularly when viewed with a nose to the ground through a dog collar-cam. Not to be truffled with.
