  2. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Like Capra without the violins and with extra politics, this didactic curio of New Deal America truly becomes transcendent in its soaring final third, a remarkable symphony of American can-do spirit making formalist Russian montage its own.

    The water scene is unbelievable.

  5. Ankit's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    This is a fine depiction of the depression age and of hunger and poverty. A beautiful take on socialist economy and co-existence. Love it and would highly recommend it.

    I see your comments guys... it was 1934.

  7. lorenzo's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    climatic movie with an incredible finale... acted and directed masterfully, it's a fary tale about a new way of life, about a real "third way"... astonishingly actual. waiting for the worst all the time I was blown away at the end. moing and engaging.

  8. DrFirestone's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    A time capsule taking us back to the USA during The Great Depression, exploring people's mindsets - surprisingly, the film surpasses most of the Soviet propaganda of that time. It's hard not to appreciate the cinematography, the set design with all the details, and especially effort put into the irrigation scenes. Apart from the historical value - the film is quite dated, the story simple and dangerously native.

  9. Juan Pablo Dircio's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Breathtaking. I got the feeling, while watching the film, that I was witnessing the origin of civilizations, that I was witnessing its mythical foundation. The naivety of the protagonist is essential for the cohesion with the collectivity. The man born and raised in civilization is completely unaware of the complexity of its functioning, no matter how used is he to it. It seemed as if humanity was still so young.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Who said the former Soviet Union had a monopoly on socialist collective farming films? Vidor's depression era pic portrays a great tale of the downtrodden collecting together to become a self sufficient farming community while avoiding most of the melodrama of the film production of the time era. Well photographed and cast and avoids being preachy but certainly inspires emotion and the recognition of common sense.

    Timeless ideas. Perfectly didactic.

  13. Yushan's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    The women in here seems to have weakened, and were portrayed in polarized stereotypes, the “mother “and the “whore”. But if you noticed, they all yelled, “let her come” when the water was running down the hill. Also, Mary seemed to have let John choose his own fate, but it’s her superior sense of responsibility and compassion that saved the commune in the end. This gentle power of women is the true source of life.

  14. higor17296's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Uma ótima crítica social, profissões como carpinteiro, pedreiro, mecânico que são profissões na sociedade atual pouco admiradas, mas essenciais para a construção de uma civilização devidamente organizada. Ponto fraco do filme foi esse lance do fazendeiro com a moça aleatória, não encaixou nada na história.

  15. Alex Meire's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Extraordinary. Small bits of propaganda (family values vs desire, basic characterization of whole social systems in the assembly) are the only stain. Otherwise this fable set on 30's economic crisis is excellent since the 1st scene, from city to the countryside, the commune, characters, humor, turning points, and the phisical apotheosis of the working channel that substitutes the romance interruptus. No padding.

  17. Reynaldo Goulart's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

  18. Francisco Real's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Cae fácilmente en cine de propaganda y en una visión argumental sencilla, pero nos da una mirada alternativa de los años posteriores a la depresión de 1929.

  19. Peyton's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    oh i just hate when a curvaceous blonde woman shows up and ruins my utopian experiment with her jazz music

  20. Emirhan Durmuş's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Kişilerin tarla işiyle başlayıp bir topluluğa dönüştüğü seçkin belirgin karakterleriyle döneminin çağdaşı çok hoş bir film.

  22. malius's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    An inspiring tale about a young couple who start a farming cooperative community, overcoming economic hardship and providing others with an opportunity to take control of their lives again. A sincere and hopeful message that the earth provides us with what we need and that wonderful things happen when people work together for each other.

  23. Miguel's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    Una muestra perfecta de lo que puede ser una sociedad comunista (cooperativa)

  24. Anel's rating of the film Our Daily Bread

    OMG. they actually dug the ditch and pushed the water through. amazing! 4 stars for the final scene which is really nice and detailed wrap-up for a generally fast-paced film.
