The Hunt (original Spanish title: La Caza) involves a less-than-sentimental journey to the onetime battlefields of the Spanish Civil War. Three aging pro-Franco veterans of that tragic contretemps, joined by a teenaged boy, embark upon a rabbit hunt where once they had exchanged gunfire and ideologies. As tensions flare between the trio of grey-haired warriors, the rabbits bear the brunt: they are slaughtered without mercy, much to the dismay of the youngest member of the expedition. This inevitably leads to the accidental death of one of the hunters--and a virtual recreation of the pointless carnage of the Civil War. Director Carlos Saura cowrote his script for The Hunt with Angelino Fons.
