Truffles  {Truffe}


Canada, 2008, 73 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Black Comedy, Comedy, Foreign, Horror
Language: French English Sub-Titles

Storied and rare, truffles have long been among the culinary world’s most prized delicacies. But now, thanks to global warming, these scrumptious little morsels have exploded in the nooks and crannies of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montréal, turning the working classes into hordes of fungus miners and bringing prosperity to the once downtrodden district.
Among the expert rooters is Charles, who sniffs out the goods for his wife, Alice, to serve up in their quaint little diner. But suddenly the resources being to dwindle – just as a mysterious furriery comes to town. Suddenly folks are disappearing, strange mink creatures are roaming – and Charles and his schnozz find themselves at the center of a creepy conspiracy.
Shot in luminous black and white, Truffles is a satisfying jaunt into the fantastic that is reminiscent of the great early work of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro (Delicatessen; The City of Lost Children). Director Kim Nguyen has created a host of charming characters who radiate such a quirky sense of humor that the film itself goes down as deliciously as its subject.
