A solid, emotionally charged picture that bridges a gap between German expressionism and poetic realism.

Some of Murnau's genius remains in the lighting of individual shots, and particularly in a lyrical sequence in which a man (Charles Farrell), a woman (Mary Duncan), and Murnau's camera dance through a sunlit field.

Its original title was Bread, which would account for the film's obsession with wheat. The story takes a long time to unfold.
