A lonely old hermit has taught his pet pot bellied pig to hunt out truffles in the forests of the Pacific Northwest.. This is a valuable skill and someone steals the man’s pig. This was the hermit’s only source of income. This film is shot in Portland, Oregon where I happen to live. Quite an unusual role for Nicholas Cage -he is very introverted and is obviously depressed by something that occurred in his past. The film slowly reveals the past life this man has had. There were times when I wished this character would wash his hair or take a shower. But none the less this is a tour de force for Nicholas Cage as an actor.
