One of the best short films
13 June 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It is quite amazing how much is packed into this short film of 20 minutes or so. The farm atmosphere is well developed and the characters are real people. The story begins with the cackling of hens and has a sudden ending which is guaranteed to shock.

The scriptwriter has a good underestanding of the feelings of a boy growing into manhood, his adoration of his peers and his loneliness when not accepted because he is "different". There is a sense of homosexuality about the film.

Duncan ( Mickey Smith) a naive boy on a pig farm spends much of his day cuddling a hen, kissing it and taking it for rides on his bike. Perry (Jason Hayes) some years older likes to display his muscular physique which scrawny Duncan likes to watch and touch. This is delicately portrayed in a scene under a railway bridge.

The local boys and girls give Duncan a rough time teasing him by making cackling sounds, but in the end Duncan plays a trump card in an incident they will never forget for the rest of their lives.
