"Whisky" film screening.
Jasob Köller owns a humble sock factory and that seems to be all he has in his monotonous life, Marta is Jacob’s right hand. Their relationship never goes beyond business matters, and it is marked by silence and routine. This monotony is suddenly threatened by the announcement of an unexpected visit: Herman, Jacob’s brother, will come from Brazil after more than ten years. Jacob then allows himself to ask Marta for help to cope with the situation. Hence, between absurdity and melancholy, as well as daily life and farce, the movie subtly portrays the clumsiness and little miseries of these characters, so different from one another, while they try to hide their resentment and friction. A story through minimum and trivial details.
Three apparently harmless personalities. Three different sort of loneliness. (Goya award to the best Spanish language foreign film in 2005).
