Poor man's Herzog, leider
30 January 2018 | by EnoVarmaSee all my reviews

The twisted, unnnatural reality of the dairy industry is an important topic. It's also deserving of a better film than this.

On the surface, Das System Milch looks like a movie. But despite of nice color grading, professional editing and all around sleekness, the movie lacks cinematic soul. Instead Andreas Pichler offers a pamphlet, a text with some images. He doesn't connect with any of the people he interviews. Never mind the cows.

In the international cut, Pichler makes a grave mistake by serving as narrator. His heavy accent makes him sound like a humourless Werner Herzog. This is further accentuated by Pichler's own presence in the movie. Which lacks Herzog's originality.

Das Milch System is a frustrating experience, to the point where I decided to leave the theater about half an hour early. Even though I agreed with Pichler's view, the movie felt like propaganda. And although it's at times hard to watch, Pichler's prettified pictures and constant use of illustrative music belie the harsh reality.

I'd rather read a book.
