This is a hidden gem of a movie that is so sadly underrated and unknown to many.

Leafie, A Hen into the Wild is one of the most touching animated films I have ever seen that involves animals. It is based off a popular children's book by Hwang Sun-mi.

It has the feel of a Western animated feature but the undeniable grief and hardship often exhibited in Eastern drama films.

The concept is fairly simple. Leafie is a hen who is confined to an egg farm and dreams of simply going outside to the yard. By playing dead, Leafie is taken out of the farm read more

Upon seeing a poster or trailer for this movie, one might think, "But chickens and ducks are for eating! Who'd want to see a story about them?"

Strangely enough, it works. Director Oh Seung-Yoon tackles the subject matter with firm and unyielding compassion, making the audience feel for a hen like never before.

The storyline treads no new ground as far as morals go. Find your own destiny. Make your own mark. The circle of life goes on. These are all things we've seen before, sure, but Leafie manages to make it seem new anyhow, with colorful music that expands and contracts with every passing scene. The read more

Based on the Korean children's book entitled The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly, Leafie: A Hen Into the Wild is a shimmering example of the capabilities of Korean animation. It's a marvelous and moving movie based on a marvelous and moving book, full of heartwarming characters and devastating tragedies. What's that, you say? That BISHONEN DUCKS movie is ripe with engaging drama and heart-breaking tragedy? Well, yes. Yes it is.

The movie pretty much follows the book to a T, so there's nothing in the story that could even be remotely negative. It's a bittersweet, touching tale of motherhood and nature told read more

This is such a great, gorgeous film. You should go and watch it if you love beautiful animation, wonderful story, bishounen ducks and topical narratives.

This film is based on a Korean novel called "The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly" by Hwang Sun-mi and is partially like a talking animals film you might remember from your childhood and also like a more topical look at the darker aspects of animals' interactions with each other and people, including the food chain, the cycles of nature and farming practices. But this is also a very painful narrative - just as there are many beautiful, heart-warming and humorous read more
