King Vidor États-Unis, 1934

DrFirestone's rating of the film Notre pain quotidien

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.
