great movie and lots of fun May 12 2010
By San Antonio Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When the main character seeks the secret of perfect cheese, he seems to find the secret to life and love. I thought this movie was funny and beautifully filmed in and around (I think), Texas, and has some imaginative direction and characters. This movie is definitely for the indie fan and has been in several film festivals. My rec: get it!

Cheesy & fun comedy! Sept. 7 2010
By Haunted Flower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
1 Disc Widescreen Edition, being released July 27, 2010

"Artois the Goat" was written and directed by Cliff and Kyle Bogart. It is a comedy about lab technician Virgil struggling with his desire to be with his true love, Angie meaning he would have to move to Detroit and accept another boring job and his self-actualization quest to become a goat cheese farmer and impress her with his creativity.

This film is a very endearing, amusing, and sometimes surreal and dreamlike. Virgil played by Mark Scheibmeir is a wide-eyed dreamer who gets excited about exotic flavors of cheese the way someone might if they found buried pirate gold. Luckily his girlfriend, Angie played by Sydney Andrews is a perfect match for him and shares his passion. She too is more thrilled by opening a mysterious box and finding cheese than if it had contained an engagement ring. Unfortunately her family is of a non-dairy frame of mind and with Angie's job transferring her to Detroit, they are all too happy to see the couple separated thinking she can do better.

This movie literally IS cheesy in many points, but uproariously so! The absurdity of the seriousness of cheese-making, trying to live with a goat in his apartment, and the lengths he goes to in order to be an artist and create are very funny and at the same time sweetly inspiring.

Scheibmeir is perfect as the adorable nerdy underdog who has been beaten down by the system squandering away his ambitious side for too long. He is so innocent and determined in his quest that the audience can't help but internally cheer him on in his pursuit of greatness. Virgil's inspiration stems from a book written by a famous cheese maker who narrates and guides him in his mission to make the best cheese...ever.

Artois the Goat happens to be the first goal the character Virgil meets planting the seed of his later goals. Artois and the other goats are so cute, animal-lovers will just eat this up.

Virgil has a best friend, Yens played by Stephen Taylor Fry counseling him and giving advice on cheese-making being a cheese snob himself who has smuggled illegal cheeses in the past and paranoidly believes a strange man across the street in a clown wig to be a member of the FDA out to get him. Stephen Taylor Fry's commitment to the worship of cheese as an art form reaches heights of utter hilarity as you question the level of delusion he might be operating under.

I highly recommend checking this film out if you want a night of quirky, silly comedy about a man, his goats, his cheese, and ultimately trying to win his woman for good.

Best Cheese Movie Ever! Aug. 9 2011
By Gianaclis Caldwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I love this movie so much! It is not only sweet, funny, and amusing, but it captures the love and passion that we cheesemakers feel over what we produce. I have told every other cheese lover and cheesemaker I know about Artois. I speak at cheese events and even mention it then. It is such a wonderful movie!
Terrific, artful movie! Dec 28 2013
By Atul - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very charming film along the lines of "The Station Agent", "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", "The Tao of Steve" and "Amalie". One of my new, all-time favorites. Enjoy!
