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
I watched this for Karl Urban, straight up. This was weird in a bad way but also a little charming... I just didn't like how the woman went from normal to crazy-bitch and then back again. I also liked Karl Urban's lack of voice when he's upset.
Cute absurdist New Zealand fairy tale, about a woman who doubts her husband to be loves her, and tries to ruin his life in various ways to prove he does. Theres a magical grandmother, who steals all the quilts in the county because shes cold, and an agoraphobic dog who walks around with a box over him at all times. Alot of whimsicle, kinda funny moments that dont make much sense. There were some innovative moments, for a no-budget movie like this, the scene where the house seems to follow Rob, as he walks away stands out. I dont usually care for romantic comedies, but this was nice enough. It's unique and pleasant.
The cinematography and music are beautiful. A truly beautiful film - a bit creeptastic too! This still hasn't shown me if Karl Urban can act or not.
