An interesting glimpse into the distant past
2 December 2014 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

Ao. The Last Hunter is a story about a Neanderthal hunter who following the death of his wife and child and with disease ravaging his clan leaves to find his birthplace.

Along the way his path clashes with Homo Sapiens and in particular a heavily pregnant young girl and her baby. An unlikely bond grows between the two as they journey south whilst being chased by a tribe they escape from.

The story of the film is simple but it's strength lies in the great depiction of our distant ancestors. Obviously no-one knows for sure if Neanderthals ever even met Homo Sapiens but I like to think that this is a pretty accurate depiction of life in that time. The make up artists certainly did wonders transforming the lead actor into looking like a Neanderthal.

It is beautifully filmed with some great scenery and it seems like a lot of research was done prior to filming as it goes someway to debunking a few Neanderthal myths.

If you're on the look out for something a bit different and have any interest in prehistoric life then this is well worth watching.
