Critic Reviews for Patagonia

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

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.

March 4, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

March 4, 2011 | Rating: 3/5

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...

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.
