They say Piemonte is a magical place. I lived there, so it’s easy to believe. A great state of mind where time remains on their side. Where you’ll find hundreds upon hundreds of herbs and thousands of flowers and magic is strewn throughout their magical land.
This film is a one off, an original. It’s about the truffle hunters; the old men of Piemonte, stubborn, delightful old guys in love with the hunt – along with their beloved dogs who perform and often solve the mystery required in such a hunt.
Truffles are considered magical in a way, so rare and hard to find; now more than ever. These old guys are not without a particular charm; strictly old school hunters. With their beloved dogs, filmed close to our home. It holds a special place in our hearts and does not disappoint the viewer. In a word; authentic.
Someone called it a delicious documentary. Yes, this critic said it best. And I think the directors captured their essence; isolated, deep in the forest; one tough and talented tribe.
Hope to see you in Piemonte; it’s the secret that needs to be told.
