"4 stars! The first truly great release of 2008, and Binoche's best performance." - John Anderson, Newsday
Inspired by Albert Lamorisse's 1956 children's classic! Taiwanese auteur Hou Hsiao Hsien's charming and subtle film stars Juliette Binoche as Suzanne, a single mother living in Paris, doing her best to raise her seven-year-old son, Simon, while overcome with work obligations. Suzanne hires Song, a Taiwanese film student, to come to Paris to take care of Simon, who is being followed by a red balloon that has grown attached to the boy. The balloon, which seems to have its own personality, hovers over the boy and his family as Suzanne struggles with her daily life. This touching, beautiful film opened the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and was also selected for that year's New York Film Festival. French with subtitles. Rated PG. 113 minutes.
I don't know that I will make it out to see this but it looked interesting and beautifully filmed!
