Hitchcock The Comedy

Hitchock the comedy is a tribute to the films and series of Alfred Hitchcock, full of references to his classics. The set of different plots and cases of his thrillers, becomes a comedy of entanglement, a vaudeville in black and white with an absurd and funny language.

Isidre works in a cinema where the advertisement for "McGuffin, XIII Festival de cortos de intriga" is screened.

On that same screen, the master of suspense appears to him and proposes that he enter the short film contest, which he himself will help him to carry out.

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, Isidre and his girlfriend Lili (although she can't see it) shot a short film, using the old technique of their own films.

Everything will be done in a single studio, in the cinema where he works; everything, except for finding some famous actors that in cinema are called "cameos", which will give a touch of distinction to the short film, and it is clear that they will have to go out to look for them and invent the most absurd reasons to get their interpretation.
