  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Land Without Bread

  3. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Bunuel's got balls. It seems like a critic of the late silent documentary, plus it has great social values, showing us that a documentary should not embellish misery, but should provoke us and move the world.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Seul documentaire du grand Bunuel ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    A fascinating, brutal but seemingly satirical look into poverty in a small village in Spain. The fact that Buñuel directed this short travelogue gives it a feeling of surrealism. It is absurd while being pretty rough. "Voici un autre vieux crétin"

  6. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Flaherty: "Look how beautiful people living in poor and precarious conditions is". / Buñuel: "There's nothing beautiful about that". It's been said in other comments, but this is the anti-Flaherty.

  9. Nicolás Mauricio Bello's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    excelente documental con una ironía brillante.

  10. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Many years ago I thought this was a real documentary, but it is really a critique of the arrogance of documentary form, the hubris of religion, and a slap in the face of Fascist Spain. 'Nanook' is about "the nobility of man", this is his ignobility. Listen to the language. Everything is degraded to the point that it is laughable. Originally, it was narrated live like a slide show. Bunuel the 'voice of god'. Imagine!

  11. Marc St-Cyr (Death cinéphilia)'s rating of the film Land Without Bread

    One the great propaganda film ever achieve. Look like a precursor of Los Olvidados and italian's neo-realism.

  12. Giuseppe R.'s rating of the film Land Without Bread

  13. Patrick Phelan's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Does anybody know where one can watch this?

  14. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Brutal. Some wonderful stuff here from a very early Bunuel. Possible to argue that this is a slightly surrealist film thematically despite its documentary qualities!

  15. Juan Valero's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Although the film has the characteristic subjectivity of the first documentaries, this is a great and raw masterpiece.

  16. chanandre's rating of the film Land Without Bread

  17. ramosbarajas's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Even disguised as a documentary, Buñuel's influence is clearly discernible. The jabs at religion and the government are no strangers to Buñuel's films. Everything (music, narration, mood, and even subject matter) is presented in the most serious way one can a documentary, and yet becomes absurd often without losing any of the solemnity.

  18. Hugo Resendiz Saldivar's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    Es un reclamo a los pueblos en miseria por unificarse y vencer los poderes de los gobiernos represores. En este caso una critica al fascismo que hace eco en la actualidad con los prósperos gobiernos que tienen gente en la miseria, esta clase de miseria que Buñuel muestra tan sórdida.

  19. Robert Simmons's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    If this isn't exaggerated, it's incredible. Even if it is (it probably is), it is a fascinating and astonishing feat in documentary film-making.

  20. akjakj's rating of the film Land Without Bread

    "At the entrance to the town, we are welcomed by a choir of idiots."
