Benny's Video

Dir. Michael Haneke

Austria-Switzerland 1992 | Colour | 115 mins | Cert 18 | Drama

Cast: Arno Frisch, Angela Winkler, Ulrich Mühe

Acclaimed filmmaker Michael Haneke’s disturbing film portrays the alienation of a young boy, whose experience of the world is refracted through the lens of his video camera and his television screen. Arno Frisch plays the 14-year-old Benny, who brings a girl home to his parents’ empty apartment where he commits a shocking act of casual violence. As with his later Funny Games, Haneke poses provocative and challenging questions about voyeurism and violence – both actual and imagined.
