The Moo Man: DVD Review

The Moo Man: DVD Review

Rating: PG
Released by Vendetta Films

A doco following a farmer in England, who's obsessed with his cows, is a gentle treat.

It follows Steve Hook, who runs an organic dairy farm in the south of the UK, and who is attached to his cows in many ways. Over a four year period the doco follows the highs and lows of Hook's life - as he takes on the supermarkets by delivering direct from cowshed to front door to dealing with sick members of his herd.

A quiet little film, The Moo Man looks more at the effect of being a dairy farmer these days, and avoids the obvious message it could ram home against the supermarkets. By being restrained and factual, it may seem quite dry to some, but to those willing to invest 100 minutes, it's an interesting insight that's pertinent to these parts.
