PATAGONIA narrates the journeys of two women one looking for her past, the other for her future. The film inter-cuts between their stories, in which one of them travels south to north through the Welsh springtime and the other east to west through the Argentine autumn. Directed by Marc Evans (My Little Eye), Patagonia stars Matthew Rhys (The Edge of Love and Brothers and Sisters) and Nia Roberts (Solomon and Gaenor) alongside Grammy Award winning singer Duffy, in her acting debut. A road movie for romantics, Patagonia is a film of intimate moments that play out against the sweeping panoramic landscapes, complemented by a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack.

The film focuses on people connected to 'Y Wladfa' the Welsh settlement in Patagonia. The strands are intelligently woven together by following a young Welsh couple from Cardiff on their visit to Argentina. Photographer Matthew Gravelle visits to photograph the windswept little Welsh chapels of Patagonia accompanied by his girlfriend, played by Brecon beauty Nia Roberts. The two battle difficult personal issues which are exacerbated when Nia meets handsome Welsh-Patagonian rancher Matthew Rhys. Meanwhile in this two stranded road movie, Argentinian Spanish speaking octogenarian Cerys decides to visit her mothers birthplace on a farm in Wales accompanied by a neighbours son. This unlikely pair are given a right royal Welsh runaround before eventually closing in on their destination.
I have to say that I really got into this film ealy on, and it managed to hold my interest throughout as I became involved with the characters.Read more ›
Slow and very intense, 2 stories running in parallel - a Petagonian grandma cheats her grandson into going back to the Welsh farm she remembers as a child and a Welsh photographer and his partner travel to Petagonia to take pictures of Welsh Chapels.
Each storyline is encapturing and quite emotional and everybody in the audience came away saying how wonderful the film was. I can't wait to get my own copy in July.
Beautiful photography. Beautiful music. Great acting by everyone. Wacky and colourful sense of humour.
Well done Marc Evans and everyone acting in the film. Wonderful work. Thank you!
I have spent some time in South America and I'm familiar with the close ties with Europe that are only 3 or 4 generations old and the conflict of belonging to two cultures at the same time and the process of letting go of the past and embracing the present. I think of all the immigration that is taking place in the UK at the moment and the difficulties many people must experience living in a different culture. Of course, so many immigrants leave their homes and families in search of a better life in distant lands only to discover that their imagination of a new life and the reality are very often poles apart.
'Patagonia' is a visual, cinematographic tableaux. A sequence of beautiful, fetching pieces of footage connected together in making a story. 'Patagonia' is kind of a visual version of Robert Altman's 'Short Cuts', which is a cinematic dramatic tableaux, made up of stories spliced together, later superficially relating only. There's only one, continuous story (with 2 unrelated strands) in 'Patagonia', as opposed to the mostly different stories in 'Short Cuts'.
The removedness and spontaneity of the basis of the story is important in the whole concept and effect. A pair of friends suddenly leaving Argentina for Wales and a couple suddenly, romantically leaving Wales for Argentina on work but as if eloping. This adds to the notion of each piece of footage as well as the linked sequences being gorgeously random captures of life and the world, random forays in life on this world. Perhaps under the delightful god of randomness, value, truth and self, whom is lurking between the grass for us to find in life. (The plot echoes the visual randomness and spontaneity.)
The cinematography is a real treat, that's how this film succeeds, it does amazingly, and indeed that's actually what this film is - cinematography. I feel that the attempt to take it as anything else or even much as anything additional would be misjudged and it would not succeed well that way.
The story is not deeply created, therefore, its simple and its the visual representation that matters, the impression. The actors do very well in this way.Read more ›

This is the best film I have seen in years.
The characters are real, and the scenery is wonderful.
Patagonia looks amazing and the whole concept is very, very clever. The film is a road movie that features two narratives, which are interwoven but separate. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Random Tandem
