Bonza

Australia, 1989 (MIFF 1989, Fiction)

Director: David Swann

The members of this family have two things in common; one, they cannot communicate with each other, and two, they all love Bonza. This is a frantically paced comedy about the trials of an Australian household seen through the eyes of the family dog.

Is Dad having an affair? Will his toupe fall off? Is the son going to commit suicide? Will Bonza live? Cheerfully photographed, cleverly edited and wonderfully performed by the whole cast, especially Bonza. - (TC)
