A fine film of few words and very little motion.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure.

Top Critic

With its intentional pacing and spare but precise dialogue, Whisky works up a unique mood that's languorous yet exhilarating.

Slyly appealing.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities.

A smart comedy but definitely not your usual, conventional comedy film. The humour is so subtle, and the film is rather slow paced, hence why it won't be for everyone.

Similarly to Gigante (another movie from Uruguay), "less is more" approach works extremely well here. Not sure why it's labeled as comedy, to me it seemed more of a subtly humorous low-key drama. The story relies on the cast's wonderfully understated performances, and the simplicity is misleading: in the end it's left up to the viewer to draw conclusions, and this movie may stay in your head for days after you watch it.
