Voice of the Nightingale

La voix du rossignol

Directed by Wladyslaw Starewicz
France, 1923

A partly-animated short film, a fairy-tale-like telling of why the nightingale only sings at night. A young girl who has caught a nightingale dreams about the nightingale and its mate, and comes to realize that birds are not made to be captive but free.
