Product Description

The fourth film from one of the most interesting and successful of the young directors forming the so-called 'New Wave' in Argentine Cinema, PABLO TRAPERO follows on from the startling EL BONAERENSE and the acclaimed road movie FAMILIA RODANTE with BORN AND BRED (NACIDO Y CRIADO), a typically intimate story from an artist fascinated by interior states of mind and exterior realities. With stunning widescreen cinematography, an exquisite soundtrack and excellent performances from Guillermo Pfening and Federico Esquerro, it is Pablo Trapero's most striking and personal film to date. Santiago (Guillermo Pfening) is a successful interior designer, husband to Milli (Martina Gusman) and loving father to daughter, Josefina (Victoria Vescio). His translucent veneer of urban contentment in Buenos Aires is torn away when tragedy strikes unexpectedly. Re-appearing in the frozen landscapes of Patagonia, and changed beyond recognition, Santiago begins a self-imposed penance in a wilderness of outsiders. Yet great camaraderie and warm humour characterise the friendships formed, bringing hope to the torments of Santi's unalterable past. Santiago finally re-engages with the present to remain one step ahead of insanity. Extras: Interview with the director / Photo Gallery / Trailer

"Nacido y criado" ("Born and bred"), a film by Argentine director Pablo Trapero, shows us the dark emotional journey of a man, Santiago (Guillermo Pfening). Santiago survived a tragedy that shattered his life, but he is no longer the same. Santiago is a man that no longer lives: he merely exists.

The background of this story is the harshly beautiful Argentine Patagonia, Santiago's chosen refuge to run from what happened to him and the people he loved. But can he really escape from the guilt he carries inside? The answer to that question is the heart of this story.

Highly recommended...

A really good film. The images in this film linger long afterwards. It is very moving in places and the imagery of the Patagonian landscape with the sad and covincing story of the central character is really beautiful. I watched it and thought I must watch this again soon. Even a fortnight later I still think about this film. It's a good one you won't be disappointed.

"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!
