★★★★ "... intricate, perceptive and artful cinema that rejects unnecessary style and contrivance." Time Out
Comparable to the work of Stanley Kubrick in terms of its formidable formal rigour, and visually in a field of its own, this powerful documentary is a captivating look at the agriculture industry throughout Europe. Devoid of voiceover, music or editorialising of any kind, director Nikolaus Geyrhalter simply immerses you in a range of real-world scenarios that are hypnotic, beautiful and horrifying, sometimes all at once.
