The Truffle Hunters

I detest social media and believe it to be one of the bane's of our society.  That being said, every now and then a proverbial diamond from said rough appears.

 

How I did not know about this documentary before, is beyond me (hangs head in shame)!

 

I searched but could not find anything on these boards...so I wanted to share.  I am half way though; the cinematography is stunning, characters so enjoyable and ultimately it just takes one away to another world.

 

 

Enjoy.

Reminds me of the great descriptions of the truffle hunters in Peter Mayle's books about his life in Provence.  Quite a tribe.

Some really interesting characters in this doc.

 

Highly enjoyable.

I saw a feature film related to this topic on a plane back in November:  "Pig".  https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/16/dining/pig-movie-nicolas-cage.html

 

It was one of the weirdest movies I have ever seen.  And I like 'em weird. 

 

To be sure:  it was beautiful; but the narrative was improbable in a manner that, for me, did not cohere.  I kept thinking something crucial had been edited out.

As I recall that was generally reviewed as a fine performance by Nicholas Cage but storyline not so much
