A satire about Australian, suburban life from the point of view of the family dog
21 October 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This short film depicts the life of a dysfunctional Australian family living in the suburbs from the point of view of their family dog, Bonza.

The family only relates by shouting and abusing one another, but every time they interact with the dog, they become gentle and kind. Peter Rowsthorn plays a nervous, asthmatic teenager who doesn't live up to his father's expectations. His sister has just lost her job and the father is unhappy with her as well. The parents appear to loathe one another and there's a classic scene in which the mother dances with Bonza.

The scene in which Bonza becomes part of Jesus Christ Superstar with Peter Rowshorn is priceless. The theme of resurrection is used to great comic effect with a wonderful surprise ending.

I loved this film and Peter Rowsthorn is excellent.
