Directors Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll co-helm the contemporary black comedy Whisky, set in Montevideo, Uruguay. An exercise in straight-faced humor laced with absurdly funny -- yet instantly recognizable -- characters and situations, Whisky travels into the world of Jacobo (Andres Pazos), the owner and proprietor of a sock factory. Trapped in a prison of day-to-day loneliness, Jacobo finds his world turned onto its ear when his freewheeling, toothy-grinned (and infinitely more successful) brother Herman (Jorge Bolani) comes for a visit. Determined to cloak the extent of his misery, Jacobo recruits his assistant at the sock factory, Marta (Mirella Pascual), to pretend to be his wife. Screened in the United States by the Global Film Initiative, as part of its Global Lens Film Series, Whisky earned rave reviews from the BBC, The New York Times, Variety, and many other esteemed publications. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide

So dry it...wait, is there anything in this glass? by tomoeDave September 14, 2010 - 5:13 AM PDT
One of these days someone is going to create a parody of this type of film. Despite good acting, good camera angles, and good writing, this genre is boring. I feel like I've seen a dozen blah movies of this type already - two people who haven't seen each other in years because of an irrelevant geographical separation come together for a meeting originally for a purpose of similar irrelevance and maybe achieve a greater understanding and relationship...yawn. I can relate to the experience - everyone can - and it's almost as boring when it happens to people who don't make movies. I mean, if you're not going to have a unique style or use special effects or have entertaining dialog, you could at least tell a story we all haven't heard before.
