I went to see the movie "Flight of the Red Balloon" yesterday. I have been trying to get to see it for weeks and I was really looking forward to it! Unfortunately it didn't quite fulfill all of my fantasies...
I thought it was a good movie and had some brilliant acting and interesting arty type shots, and it achieved a harsh realism. But it went on for a bit too long and nothing really resolved and the red balloon didn't really mean much or contribute to the story.
But I am still looking forward to seeing the original red balloon film, Le Ballon Rouge (1956)
Maybe after I've seen that I will get the more recent one!
