Whiskey with Vodka Movie (2009) trailer - Plot synopsis: Otto Kullberg, an actor with thirty years of cinema fame, is a man that women love and men like.
Now and again, he’s had too much to drink.
A film has failed because of it and the one he’s working on now, an affair between three people with a good start and a bad ending, is threatening to go the same way.
A second actor is hired to replace Otto in case he falls out again.
Telleck, the director, picks out Arno Runge, a little-known and younger theater actor.
The scenes are shot twice, first with Otto and then with Arno.
This leads to a serious but funny duel taking place between them.
Otto meets his old love Bettina again, who is his partner in the film and also the director’s wife.
He realizes that he’s long lost her and begins to eye, though sceptically, the beginner Heike.
Not that he feels too old, it’s just that she is so young.
He gets drunk with his rival Arno, who lies smashed under the table.
Otto has played all kinds of lives.
In the light of a sober day, he finds himself in his own world, alone and unneeded.
The only thing he has left is the face that his audience still believes in.
Director: Andreas Dresen Writer: Wolfgang Kohlhaase Stars: Henry Hübchen, Corinna Harfouch, Sylvester Groth
