Mattricide [2021]

ENGLISH A humorous stop motion thriller following one woman's fight with urban fly-tipping. If Hitchcock made 'The Birds' with mattresses instead of crows, it would look something like this.

Si Hitchcock avait tourné "Les oiseaux" avec des matelas, ça aurait donné quelque chose comme ça. POLISH Pełen humoru thriller animowany opowiadający o walce jednej kobiety z porzuconymi meblami. Gdyby Hitchcock zrobił „Ptaki” z materacami zamiast wron, wyglądałoby to mniej więcej tak.
