Plot synopsis
The Hunter is a meditation on life in harmony with nature placed out of time. The film’s main character, Ivan, runs a piggery and his days are spent working, while in his free time he hunts wild boars. The world of the protagonist functions according to the rhythm of the nature surrounding him. Ivan has a wife and two children: a teenage daughter and a little son. The world of women is strange to Ivan; he barely talks to them, that’s why the coming of two female workers to his farm – prisoners from a nearby penitentiary institution – causes a change in the life of the main character, which he initially does not seem to notice himself. However the desire of closeness creeps into the daily monotony.
According to the director, Bakur Bakuradze, this film is about the nature of intimacy, about the necessity of intimacy – the strongest feeling a person can experience in this world. In The Hunter the main character is devoid of limitations and artificiality imposed by the life in the city, among the human crowd. At the countryside, among the lakes, fields and woods, Ivan may be himself and may confront his most secret desires.
