Patagonia is beautiful and eerie. The plot in this movie is threadbare and silly so think it should have been a travelogue not an allegory.

A good part of the movie seems almost real, but then some parts seem to be possibly surreal. I am not sure what to make of it. Is the director playing with the audience like David Lynch? Or is he showing a man that begins to hallucinate from a long, long search for his daughter? The audience is given a chance to not take things too seriously as Viggo’s character stumbles repeatedly during his rock-climbing and his sword seems to hang too low, etc, etc. And the guy out in the open field seemed to be having a little too much fun with himself in a bathtub. The film really goes off the rails in the last 30 minutes or so.
