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.

An emotionally stunning journey of a father's return to his senses after a horrible accident.

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.

August 30, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

August 24, 2007 | Rating: 4/5

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.
