Brian and Charles

A depressed inventor builds a robot for company, but it becomes independent and curious.


Why watch this film?

Filmed in a mockumentary style reminiscent of The Office, Brian and Charles is a comedy about an inventor (David Earl) who lives so isolated in a remote village in the Welsh countryside that he decides to create a robot, Charles (voiced by Chris Hayward), with a mannequin head and a washing machine, to keep him company. However, the robot starts to become independent and curious about the rest of the world. The eccentricities of this film are more reminiscent of films like 'Frank' or Wes Anderson's filmography. Behind these peculiarities, however, there is a touching story about the search for human connection.
