Movie Info

The remarkable story of a maverick farmer and his unruly cows, filmed over four years on the marshes of the Pevensey Levels. In an attempt to save his family farm, Stephen Hook decides to turn his back on the cost cutting dairies and supermarkets, and instead stay small and keep his close relationship with the herd. However farmer Hook's plans to save the farm do not always go down well with his 55 spirited cows. The result is a laugh-out-loud, emotional roller-coaster of a journey. "Heart warming, a tearjerker of a movie about the incredible bonds between man, animal and countryside.".(c) Official Site

Some may find it a soothing counterpoint to the heady agricultural storylines on 'The Archers'. Udders may be more discerning.

The gentle tenor is abetted by the easygoing pace, Stephen Daltry's attractive chamber score and Heathcote's lensing, which captures the surroundings' pastoral beauty without going for picture-postcard prettiness.

Fewer folks would be troubled by milk consumption if they thought that all dairy producers behaved like this one. But The Moo Man is no kewpie cuddle-fest, either.

A film about one man's fight against the supermarket culture shouldn't be this touching, but Hook's devotion to his bovine brood is captivating.

Cogent but restrained in its politicking, The Moo Man contains plenty of wit, wisdom and compassion, as well as much bucolic charm.

Lesson for the day: never underestimate the emotional pull of a dying cow.
