"This film is one of the great neglected classics. The plot is shamelessly melodramatic and none the worse for it. Genuinely gritty scenes of peasant life, morally ambiguous characters, stunning set pieces such as the plague of locusts and the most terrifying riot sequence outside Eisenstein. Imaginative, erotic, heartrending, spectacular and with the most restrained use of soundtrack music in any Hollywood movie. A gem."
