One of Ritt's best films. The composition of landscape with black people always crossing it with effort (running or walking limp as üal Winfield and dog Sounder) and the wise protagonism of Sounder as the pet an companios the absorvs the sadness of tha family condition and even hope.

At an era when blaxploitation films were all the rage, here is a film that deeply and significantly explores the life of the African-American family. Set in Depression Era Louisiana, "Sounder" follows the Morgans, a poor family whose father Nathan (Paul Winfield) gets arrested for stealing food, leaving his wife Rebecca (Cicely Tyson) to raise the children and care for the farm.
