Deep in the forests of Piedmont, Italy, a handful of men, seventy or eighty years old, hunt for the rare and expensive white Alba truffle-which to date has resisted all of modern science's efforts at cultivation.

By putting us behind the eyes of a dog racing through the underbrush, happily going about what it understands as its work, "The Truffle Hunters" brings us to the source itself: the sniffing out, the digging, the discovery, the reward.

This endearing, thoroughly entertaining movie might be what we all need right now: An invitation to stop and smell the roses - or, if you're lucky, their far less showy fungal cousins.
