Kenny's Love

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Rowan Woods

"Kenny is a simple man whose life revolves around football, hot dogs and imaginary girlfriends. But most of all he prides himself on his independence. This is threatened by his sister, Margie Picasso, who visits Kenny in his new bedsitter and attempts to persuade him to move back home."

A film in which a tension emerges between the simplicity of an unpromising content and the stylish and carefully structured visual realisation.
