Beautiful
23 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Beautiful and touching movies – both filmed with a minimum of dialogue. 'The Red Balloon' takes place in Paris in the mid-fifties and has humour and tenderness. The Paris of the 1950's does not quite look a beautiful as it does today – it looks a little stodgy and war-torn.

Both these were filmed in the mid-fifties and both stand well the test of time. The sound-score in each is exquisite and enhances the tone of both movies.

The second movie on this DVD is the 'White Mane' filmed in the south of France in the Camargue region. If you love horses this is a must. I am only an amateur fan but was highly impressed.

Both these films by Albert Lamorisse are available on the same DVD. They are each about 35 minutes in length and well worth the watch. They do remind me of the best Disney movies I use to watch as a child.
