Behave

Australia, 2002 (MIFF 2002, Fiction)

Director: Bart Borghesi

A surreal and humorous film about escaping the claustrophobia of suburban life. A teenage boy cleans his room, feeds his cat, says goodbye to his parents and silently disappears. Behave is a beautifully realised meditation on escaping the monotony of suburban ritual.
