Brief Synopsis – Two young boys in 1970’s Ireland are ecstatic when their parents give them a present of two chicks.
My Take on it – This is a film that is short and sweet because it is so simple yet has such an interesting message on numerous levels.
It stars two completely unknown little boys who do a wonderful job as the new “parents” of two small chicks.
As a parent myself, I enjoyed the idea presented here of how parents decide to break news to their two children while at the same time teach them important lessons about life and parenthood.
After seeing how this movie works, I wonder if it would work even better if they expanded it or not because essentially they get everything right here in this short film.
Bottom Line – Pleasant film that is interesting on numerous levels. Great acting job by the two young boys. As a parent, I enjoyed the message and analogy that the parents are trying to teach the young boys. Wonder if it would have been even better if expanded. Recommended!
