Chicken With Plums

Rated PG-13 91 minutes 2012

Writing/directing team Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud may have deviated from the animated format of their previous success, Persepolis, to film Chicken with Plums largely in traditional live-action cinematography, but its delivery is just as fanciful. Saturated tones and dramatic, isolating sets and lighting—with just a flourish here and there of animation—make the film something that bends and twists at the will of the story from magical realism to theatrical parody, satire, and fantasy. It's fortunate that the vessel in which Chicken with Plums finds its way to the screen is so deft at navigating these shifts in technique, because on its own, the tale is quaint and thin.
