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.
It's a peculiarly moving and, somehow, emotionally satisfying portrait of a compassionate, decent man who loves his animals.
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.
This engaging and thought-provoking portrait captures a sense of the farm over the seasons and salutes Hook as a hero of food production.
The Moo Man is a very old-fashioned documentary, a gentle, bucolic account of a man at peace with himself and his environment.
A low-key pleasure.
A lovely little film which amounts to much more than its director perhaps intended it to.
A touching snapshot of the world in microcosm.
