Bruc. The manhunt

About This Project

Synopsis

When the most perfect war machine ever known to mankind suffers its first defeat at the hands of a simple drummer boy, Napoleon sends six of his toughest mercenaries on a single mission: to bring back his head.

After murdering his loved ones, the gang of warriors set out to hunt him down in the remote and sacred mountains of Montserrat.

The drummer boy, named Bruc after the site of the battle, must fight single-handedly to survive and avenge his family.

He becomes a symbol of freedom and hope for his nation, a hero who managed what no one else had ever done before: to defeat the invincible army of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Reviews

Lluís Bonet Mojica, La Vanguardia
“…Daniel Benmayor reaffirms his ability to create images that strike the audience (…) It grips the viewer and offers unexpected turns…”

Carmen L. Lobo, La Razón
“…Daniel Benmayor’s film has something of the wild ‘western’ -entirely cloaked in that candid and spectacular feel that’s characteristic of the genre (…) But how strange to come across a Spanish film that goes against all tendencies…”

Javier Ocaña, El País
“…Brilliantly directed by Daniel Benmayor, with very efficient visual solutions, Bruc – The Manhunt seems like yet another example of what many young, Spanish directors are capable of achieving: an impeccable technical know-how, consistent pacing, beautiful editing details…”

Pere Vall, Fotogramas
“…Benmayor and his editor offer us an action spectacle with a first-rate ‘bad guy’…”
