When the writers began to outline the story, the main character was British. Later they decided to move away a little from the context of the English in 19th century Argentina; it occurred to them that the character could be Danish and started to think of Viggo Mortensen as a possible choice for the lead role. They continued rewriting the film with him in mind until Mortensen himself also began to get involved and to provide lots of ideas, thus leading to his casting. See more »

This reminds me a lot of Gerry. This is a deep and very experimental film, not really a film that would be easy to recommend to casual audiences at all. It was surprising to see viggo mortensen in a role like this, and he does well, sort of. It's hard to really grasp how to judge him and the film around him. What I will say is that, just on that aspect, the film just wasn't very intriguing and that's really the one failing that makes or breaks a film. I was bored, and I rarely like to use that as a criticism but it is in this case. I definitely don't recommend it, even if I feel like there are some nice scenes here and there and some great cinematography. It's a film I don't like but I don't hate because it's still something different.
