Why watch this film?

"Feathers" is one of those movies that uses absurdity to expose the harsh reality of a society - in this case, Egyptian. The story begins when the patriarch of a very controlling family is transformed into a chicken by a magician at a children's party. From then on, the rest of the family - mainly the wife - is forced to continue life in an extremely macho and patriarchal society. All this with a mixture of absurd comedy and drama with a slow but engaging development. Perfect for those looking for different critical narratives than those we are used to, even though it reveals that certain social problems are the same everywhere in the world.
