France | 7 min 19 sec | Adventure | 2018 | Short Film (Animation) | No Dialogue

Le Rêve de Sam tells the story of a little mouse who, on a beautiful spring morning, decides to fulfil her dream, a dream crazy enough for a little mouse: to fly with the swallows. The little mouse has one year to the day to realize this dream by defying the laws of weightlessness and the misunderstanding of other animals in the forest.


এক চমৎকার বসন্তের সকালে, লা রিভ দ্য স্যাম, ছোট্ট একটি ইঁদুরের ওড়ার স্বপ্ন বাস্তবায়নের গল্প বলে। ইদুরটির এই স্বপ্ন পূরণের জন্য আর কেবল এক বছর আছে, যার জন্য তাকে বিভিন্ন বাঁধা অতিক্রম করতে হবে।

Original Language

Le Rêve de Sam raconte l’histoire d'une petite souris qui, par un beau matin de printemps, décide de réaliser son rêve, un rêve assez fou pour une petite souris : voler avec les hirondelles. Sam a un an jour pour jour pour réaliser ce rêve en défiant les lois de l’apesanteur et l’incompréhension des autres animaux de la forêt.
