Jill is a deeply dissatisfied housewife. She feels trapped and lonely; her children are unruly; and her husband, a corporate executive on the way up, is a philanderer. Suicide is an option, but the dogs that howl outside her window at night offer a better solution. She transforms herself into a vicious dog, radically upsetting the family dynamics.
Bitch is not the first film to depict the disillusionment of a seemingly perfect life in an upscale American suburb. But the director Marianna Palka, who also stars in the film, has taken a highly imaginative and original approach to the subject. Disturbing, funny and satirical, Bitch is one step away from the fantastic.
