Description: A group of notables go hunting in the woods.A young girl (Mimsy Farmer,who was the star of “More”) ,becomes their victim.”La traque” (tracking) is not a misnomer cause the girl is tracked down all along the movie which includes violence and murder.It could have been an umpteenth version of “the most dangerous game” ,it is actually much more.Leroy beats Chabrol at his own game when he shows ,as his colleague perhaps never did,how the bourgeois can get away with complete impunity.A solid cast,featuring some of the best actors of the time (Mickael Lonsdale,Jean-Pierre Marielle,Paul Crauchet,Michel Constantin..) gives the characters substance.And Claude Renoir’s cinematography brilliantly enhances the silvan landscapes where the unfortunate heroine runs for her life.
