Milk
10 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a very subtle but good little drama. The Greek movie has a family in its main focus and the trouble they're all in. While it might seem like sketches of characters those people actually feel real. And although the movie has its apparent flaws here and there, the main story plus the actors are so strong that you will be able to overlook those and hold on to the good things.

The two main actors have a great chemistry, which make the dilemma they are in even bigger. It's not an easy movie to watch, though it does have light moments obviously. The ending might split people, but you can't really satisfy everyone obviously. It could've gone the other way too.
