Whisky

BAMPFA Collection

featuring

Andres Pazos, Mirella Pascual, Jorge Bolani,

Winner of the Prix du Regard at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, Whisky is a gently funny study of loneliness, family, friendship, and keeping up appearances. Dour and melancholy Jacobo is the owner of a small sock factory in Montevideo whose carefully proscribed routine is disrupted by the impending visit of his estranged brother Herman. Herman—returning to Uruguay from Brazil for the unveiling of their mother’s gravestone—has been led to believe that Jacobo has a wife, and Jacobo is compelled to take action to preserve the illusion.
