Critic Reviews for Whisky
A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure.
With its intentional pacing and spare but precise dialogue, Whisky works up a unique mood that's languorous yet exhilarating.
directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities.
Audience Reviews for Whisky
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.
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 camera style or use special effects or have entertaining dialog, you could at least tell a story we all haven't heard before.
One for me too please
