The Truffle Hunters

“… visually, it is magnificent, with every scene framed like a gorgeous painting.” (The Spectator)

“It’s a film, in the end, about mortality, culture and economics from a “less is more” philosophy that seems to document nothing while eventually capturing everything.” (Times UK)

“Its gnarled, subterranean subject may be shrouded in a biblical halo, but The Truffle Hunters sublime focus on the natural world and both its flora and fauna inhabitants offers calming reassurance for the unwashed.” (Little White Lies)
