A renowned actor named Otto is the epitome of the problematic but beloved ladies man. Even when drunk he still knows more about filmmaking than does the amateur who is directing him in his latest movie. But what should the unreliable star do when a local actor joins the crew as his understudy? Comic situations arise not only because of the well-known environment, but also from an inclination to authentically capture the various relationships. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

an offbeat and gentle comedy
17 April 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an offbeat and gentle comedy about the politics and backstage, behind the scenes chaos of making a movie. Whisky With Vodka explores familiar territory that has been explored numerous times before. Henry Hubchen plays Otto, an aging, narcissistic, insecure and alcoholic actor who is making what may well be his last movie because of his reputation for on set shenanigans and unreliability. The film's director Martin (Sylvester Groth) grows increasingly exasperated by his star's antics and improvisations that continually ruin each take. The producers of the film don't trust Otto either, and have hired a younger understudy to shoot alternate scenes as a backup. The rivalry between the two as they try to upstage one another adds to some of the subtle pleasures of this diverting little film. There's also plenty of bed-hopping, and the off screen antics of the actors parallel that of Tango For Three, the fictitious movie they are making. This is the second collaboration between prolific German director Andreas Dresen (Summer In Berlin, etc) and writer Wolfgang Kohlhasse. Dresen aims for a jaunty mood here, but his direction is a little laboured at times. We've seen this kind of back-handed slap in the face for the film industry before, and while it is reminiscent of the classic Day For Night, Whisky With Vodka adds little that is particularly new or original to the sub-genre
