Benny's Video

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.
