All Critics (15) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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

Boxoffice Magazine

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.

London Evening Standard

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.
