Movie Info

Janina Duszejko, a former engineer, an astrologist and vegetarian, lives in a small picturesque village in the Sudeten Mountains. One night, she stumbles on the dead body of a neighbour. The poacher died a mysterious death. There are traces of roe deer hooves around his house... In time, dead bodies of the local VIPs are discovered. All of them were hunters. Duszejko tries to convince the local police force that they were murdered by wild animals. As another VIPs is found dead, Duszejko becomes the main suspect. When the local parish house burns down and the priest and chaplain of the local hunting association dies in flames, the police are almost certain who did it... This subtly humorous story of friendship, love of nature and vengeance, with unique, ambiguous characters will be a mixture of high-end and low-end genres from psychological drama to pastiche-like detective story.

Critic Reviews for Spoor (Pokot)

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (4)

The oddball characters and twisty narrative seem almost surrealistically implausible.

October 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Though far from perfect, this one part revenge thriller, one part eco-reverie, tied together with sumptuous visual brio, is the "John Wick"/ "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring" mash-up you never knew you always wanted.

Top Critic

Holland, who had a hit a few years back with the HBO Europe spy series set during the Cold War, Burning Bush, is a mistress of spare, elegant shots that show just enough to advance the story.

February 12, 2017 | Full Review…

The movie is murky and disjointed, held together not so much by what happens as by a vague atmosphere of obsession.

February 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Holland showed an embarrassing indecision about which direction to take, toggling between the activist drama, the faltering thriller, and the shabby comedy. She ends up compromising the story with a powerless, almost aleatory mix of the cited options.

January 9, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

With its alluring drone shots and martial beat, the film has the bones of a thriller, but as it moves through the seasons there are moments of whimsy and an Indian summer romance.
