"An assault on the viewers narrative and sexual sensibilities" (366 Weird Movies). "One of the best films of the year" (Film Bizarro). "Atanes’ best and most bizarre film yet. If Gallino is your first Atanes film, it certainly won’t be your last." (Film Fanaddict). "Gallino, The Chicken System is an entire universe of creativity. It’s more of an art experience than a simple film, and you will feel more than a little dirty after watching it" (Film Threat).
