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

Unexpectedly Intriguing & Moving
18 July 2018 | by daoldigesSee all my reviews

Pierre is a diary farmer completely devoted to his cows and seems to have little time for anything or anyone else. One day one of his cows becomes ill with a fatal, highly contagious illness that he does not want to accept, nor let anyone know about because it would mean the mandatory extermination of his entire heard of cows, and of his livelihood and entire way of life. He goes to extreme measures to eliminate this problem. I found Bloody Milk to be a lot more interesting and emotionally engaging that I'd anticipated. To the one reviewer who did not like this film complaining that it wasn't their idea of a ''feel-good' film - that was not the director's intent. I think he did want to create an interesting, moving, and realistic portrait of the plight of one committed and passionate dairy farmer faced with the elimination of his way of life and everything he's ever known, and in that regard this film succeeds quite well.
