Tony:[Tony walks up to a DVD seller on the street] Hello, how are you? All right.
Tony:[Tony doesn't get a response] I haven't got a DVD player, I've only got a video recorder, I'm afraid. You should sell videos. If you had any action films on video, I'd buy them from you.
Tony:[Tony still doesn't get a response] What do you think... What do you think is better, um, karate or kung fu? I'll see you, then. Might see you tomorrow.

Tony (2009), 17 January 2012
Author: SnakesOnAnAfricanPlain from United Kingdom

Tony is a look at a serial killer and their everyday life. Tony is awkward, very awkward, and this leads to him being ignored or mistreated by the majority of people. Tony manages to gather sympathy throughout the film as he just so happens to encounter a lot of scummy, horrible people. These people generate no sympathy for themselves, but not in a bad way. The film seems to suggest that we should all just be decent human beings. There's no harm in saying "hello" or having rational discussions. It's the hate and negativity aimed at Tony that fuels his actions. Peter Ferdinando gives a brilliant performance and carries Tony, realistically, through a wide range of scenarios, from unprovoked arguments, to awkward job interviews. A little, but well executed film.
