Goldfish

Χρυσόψαρο (Greek)

Greece | 14 | Comedy, Drama | 2017 | Short Film (Live Action) | Greek

Stratis, a young boy, is excited to get a new pet fish, in celebration of his birthday. His father, a rough conservative guy, takes him to the pet store but ends up getting disappointed in his son’s choice. Stratis decides to adopt a chubby flamboyant goldfish instead of the more "boyish" option of a gladiator fish. During their return home, the boy declares that his new goldfish is gay. His father cannot tolerate any of this anymore.

বাংলা

ছোট্ট বালক স্ট্র্যাটিস তার জন্মদিন উপলক্ষে একটি নতুন মাছ উপহার পাওয়া নিয়ে ভীষণ উচ্ছসিত। স্ট্র্যাটিসের বাবা, যে কিনা ভীষণ রুক্ষ মেজাজী এবং রক্ষণশীল আদর্শে বিশ্বাসী সে স্ট্র্যাটিসকে নিয়ে পোষাপ্রাণী কিনতে পাওয়া যায় এমন দোকানে নিয়ে। বাবা যখন দেখলেন যে গ্ল্যাডিয়েটর মাছের বদলে গোলাপি রঙের গোল্ডফিশ পছন্দ করেছে স্ট্র্যাটিস, তখন সে বেশ অসন্তুষ্ট হলো। কিন্তু তার ধৈর্যের বাঁধ ভেঙ্গে গেলো যখন বাড়ি ফেরার পথে স্ট্র্যাটিস ঘোষণা দিলো যে মাছটা সমকামী।

Original Language

Ο εφτάχρονος Στρατής είναι ενθουσιασμένος γιατί θα πάρει για δώρο γενεθλίων ένα ψαράκι. Ο συντηρητικός μπαμπάς του όμως απογοητεύεται με την επιλογή του γιού του. Αυτό, γιατί ο Στρατής αγοράζει ένα φανταχτερό χρυσόψαρο αντί για έναν μονομάχο, που είναι πιο αγορίστικη επιλογή. Ενώ μπαμπάς και γιος επιστρέφουν σπίτι, ο Στρατής αποκαλύπτει ότι το χρυσόψαρο του είναι γκέι κι αυτό φτάνει τον πατέρα του στα όρια...
