The Red Balloon [1956]



i really wanna see this film. it's a fantasy short film directed by french filmmaker Albert Lamorisse. it's about a young boy who finds this red helium balloon that has a mind of it's own and together they have misadventures around Paris, at home and school. And the little boy, Pascal meets a young girl with a blue balloon also. Pascal encounters a group of bullies who jealously bust the boy's beloved red balloon. It ends with other balloons of Paris come to his aid and take him on a cluster balloon ride.
this film sounds adorable and sweet. [:
