Good intentions are not enough.
25 June 2002 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

After the huge success of THE RED BALLOON in this country Jack Lemmon bought the US distribution rights of Albert Lamorisse's next film VOYAGE EN BALLON. But instead of releasing a dubbed version here he hired Broadway veteran S. N. Berhman to write a script & re-recorded the film's soundtrack with himself reading this script. Berhman's script takes away all the mystery from Lamorisse's little movie & negates its visual composition. Lemmon's cacophony throughly trashes Jean Prodromides' beautiful score. As a topper Berhman's script has references to adult sexuality (this in a children's movie) which are meant to be sophisticated & amusing but are not. Won't some one please give us the original?
