Whisky (Amazon.com Exclusive) An inspired and beautifully assured tragic-comedy about Jacobo, a sixty-year-old owner of a small, outdated sock factory, is illuminated with deadpan, repetitive, and monotonous detail. When his successful younger brother is expected for a visit, Jacobo asks Marta, his humble, loyal assistant, to pose as his wife. The brother, lively, inquisitive, and open, spontaneously suggests a seaside trip during which the three characters begin to reveal themselves in situations where farce, jealousy and betrayal lead to places of no return. Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll have created a sophisticated, quiet film that tells a story through understatement and modest gestures. "Global cinema at its best. A truly great film!" –Film Threat "Profound, deadpan comedy... a pleasure!" –New York Times Whisky is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles. Review Masterfully understated comic performances exploit an achingly potent seam of wit just below the surface... a memorably clever and subtle work-- will leave you with a vicious grin. --British Broadcasting CorporationA marvelous Uruguayan film, WHISKY, became one of the festival's most touted offerings.... A sly, haunting tale... the final scene is one of the most perfect and self-assured moments of the year. --Richard Pena, Film CommentThe story of two souls seemingly stuck in neutral (with a third in relentless drive)... a model of both fiscal and narrative economy, and the kind of work gleaned from the mysteries of consciousness... that is too often missing from American independent cinema. ...The story of ordinary life artfully and touchingly told. --The New York Times
