Ce petit oiseau aussi voulait un moteur

France, 1972 (MIFF 1973)

Director: Jean Pierre Rhein

A bird obsessed with motors is attracted by the motor-like sound that insects make in flight and tries to imitate them.

Seeing a plane, he perches on it blithely so that he can fly with a motor at last. But the plane has trouble and the pilot ends up taking an unwanted bath in the pond.

That frees the bird of his obsession: he begins to fly naturally again and when a mosquito comes back to make fun of him, he gobbles him up.
