Jill isn’t what you’d call a fulfilled woman. Her husband Bill neglects her, thinking only of his work, and has no qualms cheating on her, while her four children grow more and more distant. Suddenly she starts to behave like a dog.

Behind a grotesque facade, Marianna Palka (also the lead actress and writer) offers a daring feminist fable, reminiscent of Marco Ferreri’s Liza in which Catherine Deneuve accepted to take the place of Mastroianni’s dog. In Bitch though, the creature is more savage and aggressive and doesn’t hesitate to show her fangs. A new success for SpectreVision (The Greasy Strangler, Cooties, Toad Road).
