The journey taken by two different women as they attempt to escape from their mundane lives in order to find peace within themselves in a new setting. Argentinean Cerys (Marta Lubos) is an elderly woman who, accompanied by her anxious teenage nephew Alejandro (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), ventures to the Welsh farmlands where her mother was raised. American pop singer Duffy serves as Alejandro's love interest in the role of Sissy, a caravan park employee. Wales native Gwen (Nia Roberts) is an aspiring actress stuck in a rocky relationship with her photographer boyfriend Rhys (Matthew Gravelle) after being unable to conceive a child. The couple travels to Patagonia when Rhys is sent on a business project, only to have tensions rise when Gwen becomes romantically involved with their tour guide, Mateo (Matthew Rhys).

Marc Evans's "Patagonia" is one of the many movies that focuses on cultures that we don't usually see. In this case, it's Argentina's Welsh community. The movie contains two parallel stories: one is a Welsh couple that goes to Argentina to photograph the Welsh chapel in Patagonia, the other is an elderly Argentine woman who goes to Wales to see her ancestral farm. Both sets of people will have quite the experience.

This is one of only two movies that I've seen in which Welsh gets spoken; the other is "Hedd Wyn", about a noted Welsh poet (both movies were the United Kingdom's submission to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film). Both movies cast a perceptive eye on the Welsh culture. And in this one, we get to see both the Argentine plains and the Welsh countryside. You'll probably want to go to both countries after seeing it. Outstanding movie.
