Based on an earlier poultry-powered short, director Mélanie Auffret’s debut feature is a film of scrambled tones with black comedy, bucolic whimsy and social-realism occasionally delivered at a cartoon-ish pace. But its ingredients make for an enjoyably cheesy soufflé, for all that.

At once an interesting companion piece to that fabulous recent Kiwi rural drama Bellbird and a reminder that someone really should release Morgan Spurlock's excellent US "big chicken" expose Super Size Me 2 in this country, Roxane is not fowl, nor mere poultry entertainment.
