Translation from the same movie.

The quote is "it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same sky". If someone can tell me the Ukrainian translation for that, I'll be in your debt. Thank you in advance.

I would translate it this way: "Думка про те, що ми спимо під тим самим небом, допомагає". If "helps" in this context has a meaning related to "calms down", I'd replace the last word with "заспокоює".

Hope this helps!

It's a quote from An American Tail, which is an animated movie from the 80s about a family of 19th century Jewish mice migrating from what was then Russia to New York. It's an incredible movie, so I'd see it if you haven't already.

And thank you, StrayCat for the translation.

Думка про те, що ми спимо під одним небом, допомагає/заспокоює?

А "під тим самим" - це граматично неправильно чи просто менш милозвучно?

Трохи інший зміст, як на мене:

Під одним небом - під нашим спільним небом, твоїм і моїм, що нас єднає
Під тим самим небом - під тим, що було колись, було або є деінде, що поєднує різні проміжки простору/часу
