Born And Bred Review

Image for Born And Bred

A successful interior designer's life falls apart after he suffers a horrific accident.

★★★★

The most consistent alumnus of the Argentinian new wave, Pablo Trapero demonstrates again in this bittersweet study of remorse and redemption that he is a master of landscape on a par with Antonioni and Herzog.

Everything about interior designer Guillermo Pfening’s life is perfect. But a car crash sends him into Patagonian exile, where the fate of his family is left tantalisingly uncertain as he comes to terms with his own survival amongst genial eccentrics like Federico Esquerro and Tomás Lipan.

Riven with Kaurismäkian humour and strikingly photographed by Guillermo Nieto, this is an exceptional study of the ennui of isolation and the hopelessness of grief.

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