Critic Reviews for The Truffle Hunters

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (57)

  • Wonder and whimsy is back in the forest. "The Truffle Hunters" - surely among the greatest dog movies - even wryly occasionally shifts to a dog's point of view.

    March 6, 2021 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • The film, directed and photographed (beautifully) by Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw, is fragrant too, a parallel study in deep gratification and rapt inhalation.

    March 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • What we are presented with is essentially a boisterous gallery of aging oddballs. But to their credit the filmmakers never make fun of them. Their eccentricity, because it is rooted in a passion for the natural world, has an innate dignity.

    March 5, 2021 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite its creators' general fussiness, The Truffle Hunters is good enough, if only because guys like Carlo and Angelo are more charming than they are eccentric.

    March 5, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A film that lies at the intersection of documentary, Italian neorealism and Renaissance painting, a wholly singular visual experience that is inextricably tied to the film's storytelling.

    March 4, 2021 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Without spoiling the delicate mood with narration or straight-to-camera interviews, Dweck and Kershaw bring us into the company of a band of idiosyncratic adherents to an ancient way of life.
