An existential nightmare of grief, guilt and penance, with Guillermo Nieto's sublime photography of the frozen, otherworldly landscape a correlative to Santiago's suspended state.

Not everyone will find Trapero's uncompromising storytelling and quiet camerawork to their liking, but once more with Born and Bred he demonstrates a masterful ability to unite the physical and the metaphorical, the social and the sensual.

The film is so beautifully shot and controlled that Patagonia becomes as much a character in the film as the middle-class Santiago and his working-class friends.
