|Picture Miss Marple as a vegetarian hippy and animal rights activist living in Fargo, and you have the blueprint for Duszejko, the gray-haired protag of Agnieska Holland's Spoor. When a series of mysterious murders begins knocking off the hunting club in a small mountain community, she finds herself in the middle of the action. But unlike Agatha Christie's immortal detective, she's hopelessly entangled with the people and proceedings around her, and her conclusions are based on emotional evidence, not shrewd deduction.
Full of spectacular nature shots of deer and boar scampering through snowy virgin forests, the film could find art house audiences on the sheer beauty of its production. Animal rights groups might well embrace it as a landmark.
