Benny’s Video * Michael Haneke (1992)

I always think twice before watching a Haneke film because, when it is good, I feel bad. This early work is not good enough to make me feel bad though!
Benny from the title is a boy who watches a lot of videos and makes videos himself. At some point his video-reality interferes with reality and his and his parents have to think of a way to prevent problems. Besides ‘that scene’, “Benny’s Video” is just a drama, perhaps even a bit of a ‘coming-of-age’.
