English is not my language.

As average as it is, this movie was kind of fun to watch.

It starts with Leafie wanting to live in the backyard instead of laying eggs, so she pretends to be dead and is sent off to be buried, but manages to escape. After this weasel is introduced who wants to eat Leafie and a Wild Duck helps her escape.
This Wild Duck has been fighting the Weasel for some time. And there is his final fight, where he sacrifices himself by jumping off a cliff and taking the Weasel with him, but the Weasel survives.

After this "the real movie begins," as read more

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

- Introduction was straight forward
-conclusion was not what i thought would happen. Especially in a movie meant for kids. Although, props to the writer for not only was it understandable but could have been far more grotesque.

-no gore

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
