OUR DAILY BREAD is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn't always easy to digest - and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas.
Claus Hansen Petz,
I studied marine biology for a couple years in college, and this movie has some of the most amazing underwater footage I've ever seen. It's a fascinating journey into the ocean, particularly the parts that most of us will never see, like the arctic regions and the deepest reaches of the deep ocean. Some of the shots themselves are incredible just in the way the camera crew were able to immerse themselves in the biological communities that they were filming, especially the feeding scenes. Anyone with even a passing interest in the ocean and the mysteries of life on this planet should definitely not miss this. This movie is an explanation for why so many people believe that our planet should be called Oceanus rather than Earth.
