Excellent movie about the Great Depression, that was created and watched while the Great Depression was still happening. It's a piece of history if nothing else.

Cinema Paco 2 image 3.5/5 Sound 2.5/5. Great movie about the depression of the 30s, with great performances. Very topical for the current abuses of the recruiters with the crisis

I don't understand what the point of this movie was. As far as I was concerned they could have put 'the end' 20, 30, 40 minutes earlier in the movie and it would have made as much sense as a film. Plot was weak, nothing stood out that made it seem worth my time.
