Benny's Video

Benny is a disaffected teen whose life has begun to revolve around the violent films he watches, but his obsession soon crosses the line between voyeur and participant when he begins making movies of his own. This early controversial feature from Michael Haneke bears all the thematic hallmarks of his later works - alienation, suffering and an emotionally disconnected family/society - and is a hard-hitting treatise on the hypocrisy of bourgeois morality.
