"And now the dancing chicken. … I had them for three months in special training so that they would dance as long as possible. … I came across it and I knew I had to have it as the last thing in the film. … And here seeing this chicken I knew that was something very very very big, a metaphor, a big metaphor, without knowing metaphor for what. … And now I think I shouldn’t talk over this scene here, the chicken. It’s just too good. No more comment. Full stop.” - Werner Herzog, in the DVD commentary for Stroszek.
