Benny's Video

110' - 1992 - Crime, Drama - Dialogue: Arabic, German, French, English
Director: Michael Haneke With: Arno Frisch, Angela Winkler, Ulrich Mühe
Benny is a young adolescent from a well to do family. His parents leave him largely to his own devices, and he fins an emotional substitute in the world of video films. Gradually, his values and his sense of reality begin to change. He meets a girl of about his own age and takes her home with him one weekend. The apartment is empty - his parents have gone to the country. What begins as a shy love story ends in a catastrophe: the life of the family can never be the same again ...
