Film Description

A chilling study of detachment from socialisation, incommunicability and the gulf between generations, Benny's Video 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, later to play one of the psychopathic young men in Funny Games, plays the 14 year-old Benny, who fills the void of a meaningless middle-class existence by immersing himself in the world of violent videos. Gradually, without his parents noticing, his sense of reality changes. One weekend, with the house to himself, he invites a girl over, but events turn tragic after he gets out a homemade tape of the slaughter of a pig.
