The Old Man Movie: Lactopalypse (15)

Friday 16th June 2023 - Thursday 22nd June 2023

Introduced on Friday 16th June by Pat Kelman, Director of 606, the distribution company behind the UK release of this incredible film.

Dir. Mikk Mägi, Oskar Lehemaa, Estonia, 2022, 88 mins, Estonian with English subtitles. Cast. Mart Avandi, Reido Blond, Meriiyn Elge.

If Jan Švankmajer and the South Park crew launched a joint takeover of Aardman Animation, they might come up with something as surreal and puerile as this madcap, very funny, yet somehow sweet-natured Estonian stop-motion comedy – Sight and Sound

In a remote Estonian village, three children from the city are forced to spend the summer on their grandfather’s farm. Determined to make them see the simple beauty of country living, he sets them to work, only to have them accidentally set loose his prized but thoroughly mistreated cow. Now they have only 24 hours to find and milk the rogue bovine before its exponentially expanding udders explode and unleash the Lactopalypse. To make matters worse, a decrepit, disgraced farmer and his chainsaw-wielding gang is also determined to catch the animal, with murder on his mind. On their epic journey, our heroes must face festival hippies, vicious forest dwellers, strange woodland sprites, heavy-metal rockers and other dangers commonly found in the Estonian countryside!

For detailed information about the film's age rating and potential triggering contents, you can visit the BBFC website and search the film title, then scroll down to the “ratings info” section:

We will also play the short film Romance Royale before the main film, as part of the Culture Connectors Collective project, a partnership between Plymouth City Council Youth Justice Service, Fotonow CIC and Plymouth Arts Cinema.
We worked with a group of young people to make a film from start to finish; devising the plot, storyboarding the shots, filming, animating and editing. The film is a short, animated cats and dogs version of the timeless Romeo and Juliet love-story and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as they enjoyed making it! Running time: 1 min.
