...Alfred Hitchcock has fashioned a major work of cinematic art
— Andrew Sarris, The Village Voice
An apocalyptic stunner from the Master of Suspense!
Chic socialite and practical joker Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) meets the dashing Mitch Brenner in a city pet shop and follows him to the sleepy coastal hamlet of Bodega Bay. However, what begins as a romantic rendezvous turns terrifying when birds of all kinds attack the townspeople. Featuring technologically innovative camerawork (particularly “bird’s eye view” shots) and a haunting blend of subdued naturalism and emotional tumult, The Birds is the essential Hitchcock film of the 1960s.
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
