Global Lens Collection: Whisky [DVD] [2004]

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.
