Best Films of 2010 #16 – ‘Wild Hunt’

Wild Hunt

Directed by Alexandre Franchi

It’s been a great year for Canadian cinema, and The Wild Hunt is one of the best and strangest of the year. Social decay, crippling urbanism and rampant narcissism are ideas explored through LARPING (Live Action Role Playing for those of you not in the know). Wickedly funny, the film quickly spirals into a weird, barbaric Lord of the Flies scenario. When confronted with the choice, it seems most would rather return to the cruel feudalism of the past: society may have changed, but people haven’t. One of the most unexpectedly brutal film of the year, it reaches Shakespearean heights of emotion and violence. A medieval reenactment game turns into a Shakespearean tragedy when a non-player crashes the event to win back his girlfriend. First-time feature filmmaker Alexandre Franchi scooped up the prize for best Canadian first feature at TIFF and an audience award at Slamdance. Effective acting, assured direction and breathtaking cinematography by Claudine Sauve, make the low budget production worthy of your attention. Highly recommended for anyone looking for something fresh and original.
