Beni walks by himself (Albanian: Beni Ecën Vetë) is a 1975 comedic Albanian children's film directed by Xhanfize Keko and written by Kiço Blushi.


Beni is an eight-year-old boy living in Korçë with his parents. Beni leads a sheltered life. His mother is very protective and doesn't let him play outside. When Beni is able to go outside, the neighborhood children make fun of him, often calling him a "scaredy cat" and a "mama's boy." One day when his uncle Thomai is visiting, he sees Beni crying after the other children took his horse. Thomai decides to take Beni on horseback to a distant village where he teaches him about life and how to be a man. In the village Beni learns a great deal and blossoms into a mature boy. On the way back to the city Beni doesn't need to ride on horseback, he is able to walk all the way home on his own.
