Brilliant
4 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I am 20 years old and I live in Uruguay, the place in which the movie "Whisky" is set. I am fond of movies that deal with characters you can sit next to on the bus, and this movie not only shows people that DO exist, attitudes that move ourselves around day after day and ways of life that are acquired almost subconsciously, but it is able to capture the essence of a society that has a personality of its own. Many people have found this movie depressing, boring, pointless, but I find it brilliant because it is exactly through these characteristics that the movie is able to show the core of who we really are. I know that every Uruguayan must have seen him/herself on that screen at some point and the movie has the incredible ability of making you love who you are entirely, good and bad aspects, detached from the objective perspective through which it is shown. The sense of belonging in which I was wrapped was overwhelming, and this is a feeling that resides within us; this movie was able to grab it and put it right in front of me.
