Frequently Bought Together
Internationally acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, Whisky is an intoxicating deadpan comedy reminiscent of the films of Aki Kaurismaki and Jim Jarmusch. Jacobo is a man of dull routine who arrives each day at his run-down sock factory at the same early hour as his faithful assistant, Marta. When his socially adept brother, Herman, pays an unexpected visit, the introverted Jacobo prefers to lie rather than admit his bachelor status, asking the dour but obliging Marta to pose as his wife. The ruse works well enough until Herman invites them on a seaside trip where the strain of the pretence and old sibling rivalries lead to a comically uncomfortable series of events. Featuring beautifully understated performances from Andres Pazos and Mirella Pascual as the mismatched couple, this eccentric, touching and minutely observed film drips with gloriously dry humour

Jacobo, the lonely owner of a small, dilapidated sock factory is faced with the prospect of a weekend visit from Herman, his more successful brother (who also makes socks) from Brazil. He asks his most loyal employee, Marta, to pretend to be his wife for the weekend, to fool his brother into thinking that he is not as lonely as he really his.
To be honest, on the surface, not much really happens in this film, which is actually a good thing. For it allows us to linger on the minutiae of stilted conversations, deadpan expressions and the general awkwardness that the trio have to endure, and which provided me with so much laughter.
However, underneath the surface, there is a lot more happening, as Marta awakens to the reality that life does not have to be so dull and constricting. Indeed, the abrupt ending leaves the audience with the question mark of really how much Marta has been affected by a few days in the presence of Jacobo’s more outgoing brother.
The three main characters will remind people of many mums and dads, aunts and uncles, work colleagues etc. for whom middle age has become a crushing, flat line endurance test, rather the “Second Youth” so often portrayed in the media. Whisky recognises this and deserves to be applauded for taking the risk that audiences will find middle-aged banality so upliftingly funny.
