What is Chicken for Linda! about?

“Paulette feels guilty after unjustly punishing her daughter Linda and would do anything to make it up to her,” the synopsis reads. “Linda immediately asks for a meal of chicken with peppers, which reminds her of the dish her father used to make. But with a general strike closing stores all across town and pushing people into the streets, this innocent request quickly leads to an outrageous series of events that spirals out of control, as Paulette does everything she can to keep her promise and find a chicken for Linda.

“Directors Chiara Malta (Simple Women) and Sébastien Laudenbach (The Girl Without Hands) unleash a unique visual marvel of hand-painted animation with bright, color-blocked characters, and a story that is an intoxicating blend of slapstick comedy, musical, and family drama, as Paulette and Nina ultimately confront the grief of an unspoken tragedy, and the meal that could finally bring them closer together.”

The voice cast for Chicken for Linda! includes Melinée Leclerc, Clotilde Hesme, Lætitia Dosch, Estéban, Patrick Pineau, Claudine Acs, Scarlett Cholleton, Alenza Dus, and Anais Weller.
