from the “Paint me a fairy-tale…” series
An auteur animated film for children in the Paint me a fairy tale… series, produced in the painting animation technique directly under the camera, is a second film and the first screen adaptation of this tale by Andersen, just like the previously-made The Flax.
A film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale. It is a funny, but also true story of a certain rumour. This subject has always been topical, especially now, in the era of audio-visual media, tabloids and the Internet. The story is set in the suburbs of a certain Hen Town. It is centred on a growing rumour about a respectable hen who has lost one small feather. The news, passed on from lips to lips, or, to be precise, from beak to beak, is transformed into a “dramatic” tale of five hens who died of love to a cock. The behaviour of the poultry and other birds is a caricature of human reactions and emotions caused by spreading rumours.
