Le rat de maison et le rat des champs

| 5 min

Court métrage d’animation inspiré d’une fable d'Ésope, racontant l'histoire de 2 rats aux styles de vie différents. Fait à l'aide de figures de papier et de décors colorés, ce film nous suggère qu'il peut être préférable de vivre simplement et dans la paix que dans le luxe et le danger. Film sans paroles.
