  • Critic Reviews
    "OUR DAILY BREAD sheds light on an otherwise secret world. Mr. Geyrhalter, manning the high-definition video camera himself, casts an unblinking, nominally disinterested eye on industrial food production..."
    New York Times

    "[A] beautifully photographed glimpse inside a science-driven and machine-infested parallel reality as hypnotic as it is impersonal..."
    Box Office

    "As food consumers, we're fully implicated in the production process....Geyrhalter challenges the viewers to remember, but more than that, to take ethical responsibility for their new found knowledge."
    Film Comment

    "[A] riveting documentary....It's up to the viewer to distinguish tastes of horror, compassion, and awe at the efficiency involved in such matters of life and death." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[An] impossibly beautiful study of European agriculture."

    "Geyrhalter's film is kin to WORKINGMAN'S DEATH...in its immersive focus on people at work, its reluctance to editorialise and its often mesmerising rhythms and imagery."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 5 -- "There's something of an awful, hypnotic fascination in these images....It simply shows us what happens in the agrobusiness industry each day all over the developed world...and leaves us to draw our own conclusions."
