About the movie
A man is looking for something white in a black world…
In an almost post apocalyptic set up, we follow the path of a man who is trying to rediscover the meaning of purity and desire. What happens though when purity isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be and the boundaries with desire blur?
While James Bond is hunting down his “object of interest” guided by expensive special effects, stunts, spectacular camera shots and his – of course – thrilling dialogues, the main-character of “Milk” does not speak. Actually there are no dialogues, no special effects, no stunts – only a man looking for milk. The story becomes interesting as we are pushed into the micro-cosmos of the film. The world is fictional, black and white, has only a few characters and its only goal is to find milk. And it’s exactly this simplicity of the story that provides the opportunity to fill this micro-cosmos with elaborate details and dimensions such as the sound, which along with the camera technique, they extend the reality of the film. Shadows, symbols and well chosen framing of the scene tell a story and enrich the micro-cosmos, turning it to a world itself.
We recommend to dive into this world and find out whether the man finds the White in his black world and if it is ‘just’ the milk
