| a little bird told me
Having fled revolutionary Russia, Władysław Starewicz moved to France, where he continued making cartoons. Most of them are surreal, but "La voix du rossignol" ("The Voice of the Nightingale" in English) is almost mystifying. It depicts a girl who catches a nightingale, but has a dream reminding her that birds are not toys.

The short is tinted to make it look as if it's in color. The tint might look silly to any person who's used to movies getting filmed in color, but you have to realize that cinema was still a relatively new thing at this time, and they were still trying to figure out how to do things.

Anyway, it's an OK short.

The bird's life as a troubadour. A troubadour who got killed before he reached Bombay, is it? (props to the Rolling Stones)
