Dimanche is one of two National Film Board of Canada animated short films nominated at the 84th Academy Awards, joining Wild Life by Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis. In Dimanche, a boy finds entertainment in elongating coins on a train track during a visit to his grandparents house after church.
On a typically boring Sunday a small boy goes to church with his parents before being taken to a relative's house for a family lunch. Still bored he amuses himself by placing a coin on the adjacent railway track,an action which has unfortunate and bizarre results for a passing bear.
