Ultimately "Bloody Milk" delivers a story grounded in a more mundane reality.The farmer, 30-something Pierre Chavanges (Swann Arlaud), has taken over his parents' small dairy farm, which he runs single-handed. Mama et Papa still live on site and Madame Chavanges' persistent interest in his personal life is predictably annoying for Pierre.Pierre – who perhaps devotes too much time to the online ranting of a Belgian farmer who lost his livelihood to the disease – is terrified his cows too will be afflicted.While Arlaud and Giraudeau are the load-bearing walls of the drama, the director makes good use of story's ancillary characters to flesh out Pierre's life.It's intriguing the way Pierre's cows are shown to occupy his waking hours.
