Shot in a magic realistic style that is somewhat reminiscent of "Like Water For Chocolate" and some of Brunel's more lyrical works, "The Price Of Milk" is a fun, quirky, symbollic film that blurs the lines between dream time and waking.
The actors are charming and utterly believable as is the mysterious "Mrs. Jackson", an Indian trickster that drives the narrative.
"The Price Of Milk" is a fine love letter to all couples. We must all give up something to keep together. This is a small, quiet film to love and cherish.
Well, I absolutely L-O-V-E love this movie. Not only do we get to see the usually serious KARL URBAN, (Bourne Supremacy, Chronicles of Riddick, Lord of the Rings) being cute, silly and romantic, but we get a smart, quirky, beautifully visual film as well.
The sound track is STUNNING and I purchased it immediately.
Watch this film and escape from the real world for awhile. You won't be disappointed.
If you are not currently in a happy relationship, watch with caution.
The commentary track is of the 'crawl inside the filmmaker's head' variety (as opposed to the 'look at our special effects' variety).
Full of Russian orchestra music!
Karl Urban has been added to my Amazon wishlist, but they say he's backordered. He's like a dimply funny R. Feinnes.
Agoraphobic dog in a box!
Character named after fruit flies!
It is this magical mystery, I believe, which invigorates this quirky film.
Of course, "The Little Prince" remains utterly charming throughout; "The Price of Milk", at times, is just utterly odd.
But, despite its oddness--no, despite its e..x..a..g..g..e..r..a..t..e..d oddness--I found myself charmed. I found myself saying: oh hell, stop being an old nelly, this is a love story; let them eat and bathe and do dishes and get engaged all at once, all in one bathtub.
oh hell, stop worrying about conventions, this is a love story; let there be little, big putting Jacksons populating the movie. . .let there be a dog so socially challenged he runs about in a box. . .let there be impossible car crashes which shooty up-too-high-in-the-sky house trailers. . .
I think this movie is simply trying to convey what it should feel like to be young and in love. And if I'm too old and too cynical to understand it all, well, shame on my imagination.
I am not too old--never will be too old--to see the magic and appreciate the beauty of the colors from some remarkable shots. . .what cinematography!
Forget the oddness of a swimmer in a vat of milk--look at that white, look at the garish bathing cap, look at that pretty woman. . .
Forget the impossible long tail of the Indian wedding gown--look at the brillant red slash against the green, green hill. . .
Forget the silliness of a woman crawling through a large heating duct impossibly appearing in an open field--look at the radiance of that beautiful young face again, now encircled in chrome. . .
Already, in reviewing, I miss the film. . .as I miss being young and in love. . .
