Le Ballon Rouge


A film written by Albert Lamorisse. Le Ballon rouge is a 1956 fantasy short film made in Paris. 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.
I adore this film! It is a sweet story of a boy, who becomes friends with a balloon, but soon the other boys get jealous and break the balloon. Then all the balloons in Paris come to Pascal and take him to a ride above the city!
One of my favourite movies of all time!

Watch it yourself!:

(the movie is actually 30 min long, but the clips are from the beginning and the end)
