Quote:
Flight of the Red Balloon (French: Le voyage du ballon rouge) is a 2008 French/Taiwan film directed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien. It is the first part in a new series of films produced by Musée d'Orsay, and tells the story of a French family as seen through the eyes of a Chinese student. The film was shot in August and September 2006 on location in Paris. This is Hou Hsiao-Hsien's first Western film. It references the classic 1956 French short The Red Balloon directed by Albert Lamorisse.

The film opened the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival in May 2007.

Wonderful. Very simple story (or one could say, no story at all), but beautifully done, and connected with me on multiple levels. It's classic Hsiao-hsien Hou style, and I could imagine some will hate it for its simplicity, but this one worked for me. Especially love the camera work and how it flows poignantly and observes without being intrusive, just like the red balloon.
