  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Black Hen

    A few problems with the way the story is told, leaving many questions. Nonetheless, the 2 kids are very good and many of the scenes are beautiful. There's civil war, too. Maoist insurgents fighting government forces. That part is horrible. I wish it was just a story about kids and a chicken. In fact, I wish the whole world was kids and chickens and no war. 3.5
