Audience Reviews for Breastmilk

  • Jan 17, 2015
    The subject of breast feeding in our culture needed an in-depth yet impartial view, but instead of that director Dana Ben-Ari only shows the views of several new mothers. The main narrative of the film is that "breast is best" and all children need to breastfed, but the film doesn't tell us why. It's true that there are advantages to breast feeding, including a lesser chance of ovarian and breast cancer in women, and a lower chance of obesity in children. It's also true that only 16.4% of new mothers breastfeed their children for the recommended first six months. The documentary does not give any of this information throughout, and instead lets naive first time mothers pander to the camera about how easy they think it's going to be, and that they have no sympathy for women who don't breastfeed. There's even a lesbian couple who purport that they don't accept women who say they have low milk production, and they should still try anyway. By the end, none of these women have accomplished their overall goal. If the film serves to show the strength in breastfeeding and its good influence on children's health, it should have been more forthright with that message. There are some interviews with specialists, which are insightful, but they do nothing to link to the overall narrative. This film is jumbled and confused in what it's trying to say. Also, who is its audience: new mothers, pregnant women, breast milk detractors, misogynists? It's unclear throughout just who this is for, or what it's trying to say, making it not just insulting to women and adoptive parents who can't give their children breast milk, but to its audience as well.
