Soul searching in Patagonia
10 September 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

***THESE COMMENTS CONTAIN SPOILERS***

The first 15 minutes or so of this movie show you a happy couple with their cute little daughter. They live a nice life in Buenos Aires. That life is shattered when they're involved in a traffic accident. Next scene: the father is now in Patagonia where he works in a desolated airport. The director aims is to show a man having trouble with its past. Santiago feels like a murderer for driving the car when the accident occurred. But we figure out along the way that there's no reason to believe that the wife and kid were killed in the accident.

A man's descent into inner hell. It all happens in beautiful, but rough Patagonia. The setting for this soul searching exercise is beautiful. The director moves at a slow pace, but some scenes are worth the time.

Seen at the Paramount, during the Toronto International Film Festival, on September 10th, 2006.

78/100 (**½)
