Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Predictable and tedious, and it all wraps up in an unconvincing would-be emotional climax."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"It is slow-paced, a bit overlong but almost lovingly sympathetic, as if some people's histories have a lot to tell us that we don't know."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Evans makes fine use of cinematographer Robbie Ryan's contrasting images of the parched pampas and lush valleys, while Lubos's odyssey ends on a poignant note and the insights into identity and belonging are astute."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"As conviction slowly croaks, pop star Duffy's cameo drives one last nail into the film's coffin."
‑ Kevin Harley, Total Film
"A topcoat of enforced lyricism creates an emotional soft-focus that is unsatisfying and unconvincing."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
"If previous features My Little Eye, Trauma and Snow Cake belied Evans' filmmaking voice, Patagonia is a loudhailer that announces the Carmarthen son as one of British cinema's most promising talents."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"Very spacious, very beautiful, this film is also very vacant."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Now here's a curio - a film that flits between Wales and Argentina and features a small turn from songstress Duffy. And it's a complete gem."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Pallid and fatiguing..."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"The unconnected stories allow Evans to dwell on past and future, and dwell is what he does."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
