Just like how Theo says – life is full of wickedness; life does have a way of inventing grave trouble. It can at times make you crippled, spiraling your very existence completely out of control. Just like how it happens with Lucas. We always believe that ‘TRUTH’ always triumphs. Really? Always?? Lucas was lucky enough to have his innocence proved. Not everyone gets that liberty.
I think that the title – The Hunt – symbolizes Lucas as the hunted one just like the deer he hunts. It draws an analogy between the powerless Lucas and the powerless animals he hunts. The movie makes you think about various uncertainties of life which yell out loud – ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
The Hunt was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2012. The movie also competed at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
