Avis des critiques

In their book King Vidor, American, Raymond Durgnat and Scott Simmon praise the director’s films for their commanding sense of life-energy, and of OUR DAILY BREAD has plenty of it, encouraging you to revel in the physicality of the actors and the work they do. The final sequence, when the men actually dig that ditch, feels like something Alexander Dovzhenko might have shot and edited, so enthusiastic is its poetry of physical labor and rustic settings.

A beautiful American vision, scanning the troubled horizon and voicing a solution in John Qualen’s immigrant accent: “Go get your shovel.”
