A much underrated movie worthy of greater attention.
20 May 2001 | by (Rotorua, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The humor of Chicken is subtle and typical of the understated style of New Zealand. The acting is first class. Grant La Hood has already proved himself a deep and gently thought provoking artist. Take the time to view Chicken with a view to laughing at yourself and the human condition.
