Critic Reviews for An American Romance
Mr. Vidor made a great big color picture with an abundance of vivid American scenes but with a story so banal and tedious that the whole film seems one massive platitude.
No other American director ever matched Vidor's sense of personal struggle, or the muscular poetry he found to express it.
Even as the drama disintegrates, Vidor's skill in presenting the rhythms of collective action (here, the work of the mills and factories) raises the documentary sections of the film to the level of his best work.
King Vidor's story, coupled with his forthright direction and the excellent acting, are assets that add up to a winning total.
[Breaks] old molds to give way to ideas of renewal and progress, essential in the growth and power of a nation. [Full review in Spanish]
