Chicken Run

Peter Lord, Nick Park, UK, 2000o

vBack

Hopelessly repressed and facing certain death at the British chicken farm where they are held, Rocky the American rooster and Ginger the chicken decide to rebel against the evil Mr. and Mrs. Tweedy, the farm's owners. Together, Rocky and Ginger lead their fellow chickens in a great escape from the murderous farmers and their farm of doom.

Chicken Run is always engaging, full of bright humor, marvelous stop-motion work with Plasticine figures, dramatic conflict and wonderfully nuanced characterizations. Latter attribute is particularly notable; as in the Wallace and Gromit shorts, it’s amazing how expressive of human emotions the filmmakers can make faces composed of such lifeless material. [Excerpt]

Todd McCarthy

Der erste lange Film der Wallace & Gromit-Erfinder, besetzt mit perfekt animierten Knetfiguren, ist erzählerisch weniger stringent als seine Vorläufer und verlässt sich auf eine einzige hübsche Idee. Diese allerdings ist überzeugend, insbesondere im Gewand einer sensationellen Animationskunst. [Auszug]

Daniel Kothenschulte

Des personnages caricaturalement modelés mais pétris d'humanité et de flegme so british tirent vers le rire intelligent une histoire largement référencée.

Christophe Narbonne

Nick Park, le créateur de Wallace et Gromit, et Peter Lord, son coproducteur-coscénariste, rivalisent d'inventions pour nous prouver qu'ils restent les meilleurs sur le terrain de la pâte à modeler animée.

Bernard Génin

Techniquement parfait, drôle, imaginatif, référencé, Chicken Run est un film animé pétri d'humanité.

Laurence Haloche
