Predictable and tedious, and it all wraps up in an unconvincing would-be emotional climax.

A topcoat of enforced lyricism creates an emotional soft-focus that is unsatisfying and unconvincing.

Now here's a curio - a film that flits between Wales and Argentina and features a small turn from songstress Duffy. And it's a complete gem.

It is slow-paced, a bit overlong but almost lovingly sympathetic, as if some people's histories have a lot to tell us that we don't know.

If previous features My Little Eye, Trauma and Snow Cake belied Evans' filmmaking voice, Patagonia is a loudhailer that announces the Carmarthen son as one of British cinema's most promising talents.

Pallid and fatiguing...

Evans makes fine use of cinematographer Robbie Ryan's contrasting images of the parched pampas and lush valleys, while Lubos's odyssey ends on a poignant note and the insights into identity and belonging are astute.

Very spacious, very beautiful, this film is also very vacant.

The unconnected stories allow Evans to dwell on past and future, and dwell is what he does.

As conviction slowly croaks, pop star Duffy's cameo drives one last nail into the film's coffin.

Audience Reviews for Patagonia

It's a hard sell, but this Welsh/Argentinian co-production, shot on location in both countries and featuring two very separate stories (though both about home and how we mythologise "belonging") is a beguiling, deeply moving and superbly acted film. Stunningly photographed with a great soundtrack, this is an overlooked gem.
