A creepy, intense psychological thriller exposes the sinister secrets of a lonely London life.

Screening with Full Employment - Matthias Vogel | Germany | 2009 | 12 min

Tony is a loner, but that doesn't stop him trying to make friends – with, for instance, the drug dealers who hang out near his home, and the ladies who advertise their services in call boxes. But when a local child goes missing, his odd lifestyle begins to attract attention – and his secrets must surely be exposed... Bold, affecting and darkly funny, this urban nightmare will lurk in the memory.

    I thought Tony was excellent - an unflinchingly honest portrayal of a sad misfit and the crappy way he's treated by society and the government. Funny, sad, surprisingly moving and bloody without being at all exploitative. Great stuff.
