What's in a word? a dialect? a language? Animals make different sounds in different languages, but cats though spelt in different ways always seem to Miaow.
5 birds of different nationalities and one fat cat learn that it's not how you say it but what you say that counts. A short animation commissioned by the European Commission as part of the "languages through lenses" student film competition to promote multilingualism in Europe. Winner of 3rd prize at the Prix Europa festival where the competition was held in Berlin, 2009.
