Short film where man is forced to drink wine

I remember going to a film festival in the late 90s, and before the feature I had gone to see, there was a short film that really confused me:

Some rough guys bust into a room and pull an old man out of bed. One of the guys says something like “I know where we can get some wine”. Then they take the old guy to a different dingy apartment and get a bottle of wine out of a cupboard or something and force him to drink it. I don’t think much else happened in the film.

I was utterly bewildered! I kind of want to see it again to see if I understand anything better with age, or I’d at least like know who the director was and find out what they were trying to say.

  1. It’s not a short film, but there’s a scene in Caligula (which was produced by the pornographic magazine Penthouse) where the Emporer Caligula who was a very cruel dude, forces Wine down a mans throat, and well I’ll leave it at that, because it gets pretty bad after that.

    1. It was not Caligula. It was a short film, it was probably less than 10 minutes long, and it played before the feature that I was there to see. I saw it in the 90s and it was set in modern times, not ancient Rome.
