DIRECTOR: LISANDRO ALONSO - ARGENTINA

“A work of tremendous beauty and a source of continual surprise, Alonso’s film is set during the Argentinian army’s Conquest of the Desert in the 1870s and is his first with international stars (Viggo Mortensen), and with a co-writer—poet and novelist Fabián Casas. But the emphasis, as in all his work, is on bodies in landscapes. Danish military engineer Gunnar Dinesen (Mortensen, in a Technicolor-bright cavalry uniform) traverses a visually stunning variety of Patagonian shrub, rock, grass, and desert on horseback and on foot in search of his teenage daughter, who has eloped with a new love. Alonso’s style reaches new heights of sensory attentiveness and physicality, driving the action toward a thrilling conclusion that transcends the limits of cinematic time and space.”—New York Film Festival.
