The Red Balloon


The Red Balloon (French: Le Ballon rouge) is a 1956 fantasy short film, directed by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse.

The thirty-four minute short, which follows the adventures of a young boy who one day finds a sentient, mute, red balloon, was filmed in the Ménilmontant neighborhood of Paris, France.

It won numerous awards, including an Oscar for Lamorisse for writing the best original screenplay in 1956 and the Palme d'Or for short films at Cannes. The film also became popular with children and educators.

Lamorisse used his children as actors in the film. His son, Pascal Lamorisse, plays Pascal in the main role, and his daughter Sabine portrays a little girl.

It's good running away from evil. It's reality mixed with the ultimate fantasy. It's being a child again. It's short and bouncy, mostly dialog-less; a wonderful little journey takes "flight" in the streets of Paris.

It's the feeling of being alive again after a long, dark hibernation. It's beautiful looking and a pleasure to watch. It must be seen by everyone.
