This is probably my favourite Australian movie. Had reasonably high production values for a short film, and often used soundtrack effects, and camera, to have the world from the point of view of Bonza the family dog. This dog is the only element that unites an otherwise fractured family. I say 'fractured' because part of the film's appeal is the mixture of comedy and realism in the family's dysfunction.
Nearly every scene is comic but some are absolute comedy gold: the family eating dinner while watching TV, 'Aha, Bonza, the Thong of Death', Mum dancing with Bonza.
Peter Rowsthorn's best work.
