Critic Reviews for The Price of Milk
Adds up to considerably less than the sum of its parts.
Too bad that unconscious haunting quality is in no way conveyed by the story, which soon reveals itself not as magical but silly -- and even irritating.
I was never much convinced by the romantic chemistry between Rob and Lucinda.
Seems to be grasping for lyricism and whimsy and just missing.
Sometimes it's pretty openly treading water while inspiration flags. But there's more to like than dislike in The Price of Milk.
Rather than being cute and magical, the film feels forced, a good joke that goes on way past the punch line.
Audience Reviews for The Price of Milk
A fairy tale? Sort of. 'The course of love never runs smoothly'? Definitly. Typical? NO. Want to see 98% of Carl Urban (give or take a bit)? Then YES. Fun to watch? Yes. What really is the most important thing in your life? Watch Lucinda struggle with that.
Ummmmmm. Hm. I don't quite know what to make of this one. A surreal, odd fairytale/love story. I guess. There are some neat visuals, particularly of Lucinda running across a hillside with her bright red sari trailing behind her. And some funny bits like Nigel the agoraphobic dog. I don't know. It's good-hearted enough, and if you're in the mood for an odd movie and Karl Urban's bare butt splashing around in a milk tank, well hey, why the hell not?
