  • Whisky with Vodka

    2009. Germany. Directed by Andreas Dresen. Screenplay by Wolfgang Kohlhaase. With Henry Huebchen, Corinna Harfouch, Sylvester Groth. Dresen, a Kino! veteran whose Cloud 9 was one of the high points of last year’s series, returns with a "melancholy comedy" about filmmaking not unlike Truffaut’s Day for Night. A celebrated actor of a certain age has become a liability on the set of his new film, a sex farce set in the 1920s. The film’s producer, wanting to protect his investment, encourages the director to hire a younger actor to reshoot all the scenes made with the older actor–just in case. But the lead actress was once the older actor’s mistress and is now married to the film’s director, and complications ensue. In German; English subtitles. 108 min.
