Fonzi is a complex and multilayered examination of determinism versus free will, the nature of storytelling, and the nature of cinema itself. Fonzi takes the viewer into her seemingly happy pliant world where she meets her doppelganger on the television and has her nature as a character trapped in a frame revealed to her. As she tries to evade the doppelganger and escape the confines of a reality that has dummies for other humans playing out the plot of the viewer’s fancy, she makes a plea to the viewer to let her go and stop watching her. Eventually, she is set free to run off into the horizon out of the viewer’s sight.
