The Winter


Contemporary World Cinema | 2016 | 98 minutes

Stranger Says:

The barely-goings-on at a huge, remote sheep ranch in Patagonia, very far from anywhere and anybody. The seasonal workers herd and shear sheep, and there is an uneasy relationship between the old overseer and a new ranch hand—with the older man seeing that his usefulness there is coming to an end. The film is slow and meditative, moving through the seasons of the ranch and how this place entangles the people living there. The actors are quiet but powerful, and the wild landscape and isolation give the story a worthy eeriness.
