About the Spoor 💬


One night an elderly woman stumbles upon the dead body of her neighbor. The poacher died a mysterious death. There are traces of roe deer hooves around his house...

Master director Agnieszka Holland describes her film as ''a cross-genre thriller, an anarchistic-feminist crime story with elements of black comedy.''

Janina Duszejko (Agnieszka Mandat), an eccentric retired construction engineer, an astrologist and a vegetarian, lives in a small picturesque village on the Czech-Polish border. One day her beloved dogs disappear. A few months later she discovers a dead body of her neighbor, a poacher. The only traces leading to the mysterious death are those of roe deer hooves around the house...

As time goes by, more grisly killings are discovered. The victims, all hunters, belonged to the local elite. The police investigation proves ineffective. Duszejko has her own theory: all murders were committed by wild animals...

  • DIRECTOR'S NOTE BY AGNIESZKA HOLLAND

Our film could be called: NO COUNTRY FOR OLD WOMEN.

The world in which we live in, certainly Poland in which this story takes place, is such a place. The main character of SPOOR - Janina Duszejko is honest, passionate but also mad. Mad with anger, obsessions, love for animals and with compassion for marginalized people. She is full of rebellion and outrage. Her cruel, anarchic revolt is not meant to outrage us. On the contrary - the viewer should identify with her. Is that immoral? Yes but only thanks to extreme provocation (which is often underlined with humor and tenderness) can we uncover the injustice and cruelty of the world that Duszejko inhabits. She and her contemporaries, she and her animals. The protagonist leads us through a landscape in which the beauty of nature and human friendship are mixed with mud, corruption, cruelty, stupidity and blood. SPOOR does not end with a simple moral. The genres are mixed, as are reality and imagination. The audience may come away thinking that it was all just in the mind of Duszejko who suffers from an allergy to light...
