"Born and Bred" is a nicely made film. The acting is good and the locations are nice.
While watching this film, I thought nothing was wrong. I presumed it would come to a logical conclusion. But it fails to do that for me. Instead, it comes to a conclusion which makes everyting that went before it utterly pointless. Many people praise this film, however for me this praise is undeserved and i suspect its simply an emperors new clothes style reaction, where people can't say a bad word about it, because people would say that they don't know what they are talking about.
If you are an "artist" who enjoys watching mood pieces which have little or no importance but claim they posses a depth they do not, then this film may be for you. If you are a normal person, who likes good films, then look elsewhere. There are many genuinely good argentine films out there, watch them instead.
Maybe this film went over my head, but for me it was just pointless in the end. Its like watching a film about ww2, watching all the people die, and then the conclusion is, the war never started in the first place. You would be left thinking, well, what was the point in all that then!? wouldn't you? its the same here, i was left thinkning, what was the point?
It has its good moments and like i said, its well made, but its just pointless in the end.
I prefer to call this film "bored to death" for a reason!
