Winner of "Best Spanish Language Foreign Film" at the 2005 Goya Awards.
WHISKY is an inspired and beautifully assured tragicomedy about Jacobo, a sixty-year-old owner of a small, outdated sock factory, is illuminated with deadpan, repetitive and monotonous detail.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.

Lovely quiet underplayed observations on the life of an owner and worker at a sock factory who fake being married for one weekend....after that there is nothing left for them to say?
