Lab technician Virgil Gurdies embarks on an epic quest to create the greatest goat cheese the world has ever known, and reclaim the heart of his beloved Angie. A felonious German baker, a grave-digging hermit, and a tiny white goat color this journey of love, destiny and dairy products. Written by
Cliff and Kyle Bogart
Artois the Goat is like the best goat cheese slightly tangy, fresh, original and more than a little unexpected. Built on vignettes the film strings together the story of a frustrated lab technician, his girlfriend, and some way out friends, and the quest to make cheese.
This offering is rather charming, eccentric, and better than most big budget comedies. It doesn't look small budget in the main due to its heart: it actually invests care in the comedy and though a little too off balanced in places it is genuinely interesting and entertaining.
It strives a little too hard to be an indie in places, but succeeds à la Amelie in using cutting to accent the story.
Overall we actually really enjoyed this cheesy tale of romance, goats, and washed rinds and found it original, fun, and sweet - not bad at all....
