Movie Info

Three teenage guys try to figure out what they're supposed to be doing with their lives in this drama from Uruguay that puts the emphasis on character over narrative. Javi has landed a job driving a sound truck that plays the same radio spot for pasta all day long, while his buddy Leche, who is supposed to be studying for his exams, instead finds himself having sexual fantasies about his tutor, and Seba is waylaid by a handful of small-time dope dealers when all he wants to do is go home and watch the porno movie he's just rented. 25 Watts' depiction of misfit teens helped it earn the Youth Jury Prize at the 2001 Rotterdam Film Festival.

    This movie has some incredible little details that make all the boredom of life relatable and funny. These are not movie characters so much as people I've met and talked to and hang out with.

    Great low-budget movie, You can really feel the emptiness & boredom but that doesn't mean that the movie is boring it's actually hilarious & fun & how it points out some small things is really ingenious, I feel I'm rating it a bit low, Can't wait to see Whisky

    Oh man, what a cool little film. I hadn't missed teenagehood this much in a long time. This slow-burning slacker comedy from Uruguay clearly owes a debt to Rick Linklater, Kevin Smith and, especially, early Jarmusch. It's shot in b/w, and its three feckless young anti-heroes do nothing much over the weekend quite stylishly, pondering the implications of getting dog shit on their shoes, for example, or riffing on what it means if your girlfriend gives you a hamster (definitely nothing good). If the characters sound like dim bulbs, well, there's plenty to relate to - and Rebella and Stoll have lots of cool tricks up their sleeves. Just get a load of that vinyl rpm PoV shot, for example. Fun.
