jmcnally's rating of the film Whisky

Uruguay is like the Finland of South America, and Whisky is a work of Kaurismaki-an genius. Deadpan and all the funnier (and also sadder) because of it, Whisky is a gem with strong performances from the three leads. I like the fact that so many things are left unsaid and unexplained in the film, like the characters' lives extend far beyond the frame of the film, and that we're just spying on them for a few days.
