Very well done. Perfect for people that didn't make the step yet becoming vegan or vegetarian but are thinking about it.
16 February 2016 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I'm gonna be the first to review this short movie apparently. I finally found it yesterday on the web after hearing about it a while ago. It might be short but it is for sure brutal. I had no problem watching it at all except the animal abuse in the end credits. Because that is the reality how animals have to live now and that's hard to watch. Being a vegetarian myself I can only applaud that they make movies like this one to open the eyes of the carnivores amongst us. People should watch this and maybe some will seek alternatives to their daily food and drink consumption. Instead of drinking milk they could drink soy or almond milk. I drink only almond milk and I feel better physically and mentally with it. Now for the movie itself, it's well done, the actors are not the greatest ever but they did their job good, the story is very brutal but needs to, just because the message has to be clear. This is what happens on daily basis with the animals so I don't think the movie should show anything else. Well done, certainly worth a watch if you might think about becoming a vegetarian or even better vegan.
