 Synopsis
 

 After the success of Green Porno and Seduce me, Isabella ROSSELLINI presents Mammas, her third scientific-comic series about animal life, this time she focuses on maternal instinct. Trough playful portraits of many species, the actress-director challenges preconceived ideas about maternity in general. The contrast between scientific speech and the creative and funny mise-en-scene is definitely a laugh. Very Isabella ROSSELLINI! A model for all the Mammas.
