For the love of chickens
8 March 2015 | by adamscastlevania2See all my reviews

(65%) A really quite sweet, but in a good way, short that has more joy, heart, depth and soul than many feature films I've ever seen. The concept is simple stuff about a father who brings home a couple of baby chickens for this two sons to play with. And in doing so the boys not only learn how to care for the chicks, they also learn a little more about life in general - while in the background to all this cuteness and childlike ideal: a nasty conflict is in full swing. The cast work really well with the two child actors at the heart of the film delivering some very funny, as well as some very well observed lines. At less than 14 minutes long there's quite a hefty slab of good stuff on offer here, and as such this comes highly recommended that's perfect as a bite-sized treat.
