Born and Bred Reviews

Amber Wilkinson
Eye for Film

Just as the constantly falling snow leaches the colour from the backdrop, so the emotion bleeds out of the film.

We search for something redeeming, which we finally receive but far too late.

An Argentine film packed full of pain and suffering that nevertheless fails utterly to connect with its audience.

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.

Scenery apart, the film is penitence at 24 frames per second.

Argentinian director Pablo Trapero's Born and Bred is a quiet but resonant mood piece.

The landscape speaks louder than words in this atmospheric journey through emotional extremes.

Like the brutal climate it portrays, the film isn't easy to love, and Pfening makes a less sympathetic soul in torment than Trapero perhaps intends.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

A searing, wonderfully shot, and artfully understated examination of guilt and grief.

Impressively acted and compassionately observed, it hovers intriguingly between reality and dream-state.

Director Pablo Trapero seals his enviable reputation with this exceptional study of isolation and grief.

Trapero creates a cinematic eco-system that moment by moment, scene by subtle scene, completely enfolds you.

This is London

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.
