Field - Nocturne No. 5 in Bb

I can see how some people say Field influenced Chopin - the way this nocturne flows and how the texture is seems similar to Chopin's nocturnes. The melody of this piece seems somewhat like something out of a Disney movie for some reason. More specifically, I picture Bambi and the mice and animals in Cinderella. Why? I have absolutely no idea. The piece sounds somewhat like rounded binary. There are also a couple instances of a short transitional section that adds a lot of contrast to the piece. These parts have a pulsating, rigid rhythm as opposed to the flowing nature of the more typical nocturnal feel of the rest of the piece.
