    If some of the jokes can be broad and childish (the film probably plays best for the 10-and-under set), the overall tone is so tender that you can’t help but be moved by Linda’s nonstop adventures.

    However pleasurable and pretty Chicken for Linda! may be in its individual scenes, it doesn’t so much achieve harmony through its balancing of contrasting elements as it fully surrenders to childlike whimsy.

    An unexpected pleasure. A hand-painted, beautiful and charming vision of a mother-daughter relationship.

    In the end, love and harmony triumph (unless you’re the poor chicken). Linda is able to reconcile memories of the past with the present and let go of unresolved trauma. And everyone enjoys a tasty meal. Bon appétit.

    It's a wonderful message told with a bottomless wealth of entertainment and gorgeous animation. Add a couple songs making it a quasi-musical and CHICKEN FOR LINDA! proves a compact, lightning-paced and resonant lark.
