Benny's Video (1992)

Second part of Haneke's trilogy on violence in modern society, after "The Seventh Continent" (1989) and immediately prior to "71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance" (1994). "Benny's Video" (1992) is another twist, also devastating in the dissection of the welfare society. For the most unsettling film is Austrian director, serving radical situations, limit, raises questions that are not closed.read more

A very good movie

Before 'Funny Games', Mickael Haneke has directed this gem. It is not as great as 'Funny games' but it is still very good. It is very bleak and chilling but so thoughtfull. The small boy playing the lead character gives an amazing perfomance (he is one of the leads in 'Funny games' aswell). It is not an easy watch but it is definitely worth a look.

"13.8. Elokuvan päähenkilö on niin autistiburgeri, että en pystynyt kokemaan mitään samaistumista häneen, vaikka itsekin vietän about kaiken aikani kotona videoita katsellen. Samastuminen olisi ollut hyvin tärkeää elokuvan toimivuuden kannalta, koska nyt asioiden toistumiset tuntuivat välillä vain tylsiltä piinaavan sijaan. Vanhempien reaktiot tapahtumiin ja sitä seuraava lomamatka kuitenkin toimivat. Silti elokuva olisi toiminut mielestäni paremmin lyhytelokuvana, joka loppuu ta"

"1.2. (DVD) Spoilatkoon Yhteiskuntakriittinen, tässä vaiheessa jo aika tuttu kuvaus siitä, mitä voi tapahtua vanhempien jättäessä kasvattajanvelvollisuutensa viihdeteollisuuden harteille. Haneken tapa kuvata väkivaltaa on ehkä ahdistavimpia, eikä tätä ainoaa, todella sympaattiselta tuntuneen tytön murhaa luontaantyöntävyydessään voi verrata sataankaan Michael Myersin tai Jason Voorheesin väkivallantekoon. Jotenkin pysäyttävää on myös se, miten vanhemmat alkavat osoittam"

After an event of extreme gravity of a criminal act, we see the author, minor, that seems to have any consciousness of their responsibility in it. His father showed the same coolness in the time of the subsequent decision making. Meanwhile, the mother is in a kind of trance state, between nervous laughter and tears, unable to react at all. The solution is not simple but it's not really imp” read more
