      Wesley Morris Boston Globe A fine film of few words and very little motion. Rated: 3/4 Mar 4, 2005 Full Review Manohla Dargis New York Times A deadpan comedy shot through with a vein of despair, the Uruguayan film Whisky is a pint-size pleasure. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 3, 2005 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation An understated character study in loneliness that is one of the most celebrated films to ever come out of Uruguay. Rated: 3/4 Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Paul Dale The List Something of an evasive, downbeat joy. A peculiarly sour poem os mislaid loyalty, grief and pessimism. Apr 26, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Slyly appealing. Rated: A Aug 13, 2010 Full Review Anton Bitel Eye for Film directors Stoll and Rebella have taken a potentially farcical triangle and built from it a bleak meditation on twilit lives and lost opportunities.

      Rosana B Amo esses filmes latinos, apesar da lentidão exagerada, e da intensa e constante expectativa de que algo abrupto vá acontecer, que nem sempre se concretiza, como aqui... O estilo de "gente como a gente", cativa, o título que não tem o significado em si, mas apenas a expressão utilizada em mera duas cenas, o clima de estranhamento, sugerido no ar, que geram um certo constrangimento em quem assiste, na verdade, ponto alto do filme, simbolizada em diversas passagens principalmente quando trio atua. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Marianne B Very Well made but too ambiguous for me Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Ravenswood R Very unique film, beautifully made, quirky and enjoyable. Great camera work and editing. Good premise which could have been expanded and developed a bit more but there is plenty to work with as it is. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/03/23 Full Review Audience Member La película nos muestra la monotonía de la vida; la trama es buena y las actuaciones son excelentes; la recomiendo si te gusta el cine latino. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Some stories don't need to be told, and this is one of them. It could have - and should have - been edited down to about 20 minutes; and even then it would have likely just been mediocre. Quite possibly the only piece of film cut from this movie was a 90-second shot of a secondary character brushing their teeth. And I really wanted to like it too. Oh well, hopefully the filmmakers didn't have to pay too much for their awards. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member PIECE OF SHIT !!! BORING MOVIE WITH BORING ACTORS !!!!
