The Truffle Hunters

Rating: R21 (Some Coarse Language 些许粗俗语言)

Synopsis

The Alba white truffle is a most sought-after delicacy, fetching exorbitant prices at auctions and favoured in world cuisine by the elite of society. But what about the people whose purpose in life is to search for this lavish ingredient, no matter how arduous the task? Filmmakers Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw shine a light on this disappearing trade, following some eccentric old boys and their loyal furry companions, as they traipse through the forests of northern Italy and contend with corporate villains who no longer respect the traditional ways. Delightful, humorous and visually stunning, this documentary was executive produced by Luca Guadagnino.
