Funkyzeit with Brüno

Brüno is a 2009 film about a man called... Brüno. He’s young. He’s Austrian. And he’s ever so controversial. Brüno is an Austrian fashion correspondent. He speaks English, but with a thick German accent. He dresses in tight-fitting clothes and he is the voice of fashion. But now he's lost his job.

The plot for the film is quite simple. Brüno (played by the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen) has just been fired from his television show, Funkyzeit, after an incident in a top fashion show involving Brüno’s new Velcro jumpsuit. Soon afterwards, Brüno heads to the US to become “the most famous Austrian since Hitler”. He travels around with his microphone and cameraman interviewing people from the fashion industry and causing a scandal.

There are some hilarious moments in the film. In one scene, Brüno goes into a shopping mall in search of a locksmith. He’s trapped in a bondage suit with another man and they’ve lost the key.
