Continuity 

Just after the scene where the boy is turned away from boarding the bus, you see him running off with the balloon in his left hand and the satchel in his right however in the next shot it is reversed.
The bus Pascal gets on to that is followed by the balloon has red advertisements at the rear for Chantelle. The bus he gets off has yellow/green advertisements for Excel.
The boy comes up to the front window of a bakery shop and peers in, and we see him eyeing the display of bakery goods. Then the camera position changes so that we see the boy from the inside of the bakery, but from the inside looking out, the selection and arrangement of displayed items is suddenly quite different than what we just saw from the outside view.

Revealing mistakes 

For a brief instant, a wire can be seen attached to balloon as boy waits to cross street. Wire stands out against blue coat of man standing behind him looking on as the boy waits for intersection to clear.
