Bubby has spent thirty years trapped in the same small room, tricked by his mother. One day, he manages to escape, and, deranged and naive in equal measures, his adventure into the modern and nihilistic life begins.
One of a number of "interior" films of director Rolf de Heer which are predominantly set indoors inside rooms and buildings. These films include: 'Bad Boy Bubby' (1993), 'The Quiet Room' (1996), 'Dance Me to My Song' (1998), 'The Colonel' (1978), 'The Audition' (1979), 'Alexandra's Project' (2003), and 'The King Is Dead!' (2012).
Pop get pizza for cat!
The closing credits play over a scene showing Bubby playing in a garden with his children.
The 18-rated UK release of this film was cut by 3s for the cinema version and a further 20s for video. The 3s cut for the cinema version was to remove a scene of a tethered cat being pulled by a string (a scene which contravened the UK Animals Act). All the cuts were waived for the 2007 DVD release.
