Failure as a comedy, but a pretty good story., 1 March 2011
Author: smwright from NYC

This movie had a pretty good feel about it when it was taking itself seriously. The comedic aspect just felt forced and took away from the story.

There was a slight unnecessary mystical element to the film, that should have been left out of the film or built upon instead.

The acting was OK for what it was, but there are definitely some spotty moments that took me out of the film. The main characters were decent but the really insignificant characters were quite bad.

The strongest aspect of the film came from the main character's passion and obsession for making a good cheese and the way the filmmakers conveyed that.

I felt Artois had potential but wasn't executed well. It's still an entertaining film, and has it's good moments, if you can sit through the bad ones. I did consider giving up on it, but I kept watching and paid off.
