"This endearing, thoroughly entertaining movie might be what we all need right now: An invitation to stop and smell the roses - or, if you're lucky, their far less showy fungal cousins."
★★★★ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"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."
★★★★ Jake Coyle, Associated Press

"It's a film to leave you with a smile on your face."
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS follows a handful of men, seventy to eighty years young, in Piedmont, Italy, on the search for the elusive Alba truffle. They’re guided by a secret culture passed down through generations, as well as by the noses of their cherished and expertly trained dogs. The documentary subtly explores the devastating effects of climate change and deforestation on an age-old tradition through a visually stunning narrative that celebrates life and exalts the human spirit.
