Flight of The Red Balloon (Movie Watch)

Hou Hsiao Hsien's FLIGHT OF THE RED BALLOON is the latest masterpiece inspired by Albert Lamorisse's 1956 Academy Award Winning classic, THE RED BALLOON. Hou expands on its key elements-a young boy, a red balloon & Paris- to weave an achingly beautiful tale on the mysteries of familial bonds & the lingering effects the past has on us all. A precious young boy, Simon must deal with the increasing fragility of his mother, the loving yet preoccupied Suzanne. Completely immersed in her own tribulations, Suzanne hires Song, a Taiwanese film student, to help care for Simon. Together with Song, a unique extended family is formed, utterly interdependent yet lost in separate thoughts & dreams mirrored by a delicate, shiny red balloon.
