Storyline

Pierre, a thirty-five-year-old dairy farmer, has taken over his parents'farm and devotes twenty-four hours a day to his cows. They are all for him so when an epidemic breaks out, threatening his herd, he gets terribly anxious. Even the assurances of Pascale, his veterinarian sister, that everything is fine, do not soothe his anxieties. And - quite unfortunately - his fears prove founded since one of his animals gets infected. The shock is severe because one cow touched means that his whole herd will be slaughtered. But Pierre is not going to let that happen. Written by Guy Bellinger

The world of dairy farming somehow made interesting
14 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Holly Cow! 2001 FEMIS Film School graduate/shorts director Hubert Charuel somehow manages to write (along side Claude Le Pape) and present a remarkably interesting and touching story about dairy farming. Thirty-something Pierre (Swann Arlaud - "Romantics Anonymous" 2010) has taken over the family dairy farm, with his sister Pascale (Sara Giraudeau ""Beauty and the Beast" 2014) carrying community veterinarian duties. When surrounding farms began to loose their stock due a stock epidemic, Pierre does what he must to ensure his farm doesn't fall victim to closure. While this topic may not sound like your type of movie, the story is so well told, and provides a glimpse into the world of dairy farming that is rarely seen, that the film somehow manages to grab and sustain your attention. Charuel and Le Pape get us up close and personal with the daily chores of a dairy farm, and show us how important and time consuming this life can be, especially for the smaller farmer. Arlaud and Giraudeau make a perfect brother and sister pair, equally convincing when odds with each other, as when they try to work together. Charel's actual father (Jean Charel) perfectly plays the father role here, with other family and friends in various roles. "Bloody Milk" will probably not make it to the big screen, so keep an eye out for it in your local festival. This film was screened at the Palm Springs International Film Festiva #PSIFF2018
