Sequel to THE RED BALLOON
8 August 2000 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

First, I am happy to see that this film has been re-released to video and perhaps a DVD is to follow. As a follow up to THE RED BALLOON I like the French title VOYAGE EN BALLON better than STOWAWAY IN THE SKY. This is a gentle film that floats you across the French countrysides and town church steeples. One of the six classic Albert Lamorisse films for children this was his first full length feature and sequel to THE RED BALLON. Once again starring Lamorisse's son Pascal in the lead role, this time stowing away in a 60-foot tall orange balloon his grandfather made. The two journey across France in an adventure that is brilliantly and colorfully photographed. The only disappointment is that the balloon should have been red (a reincarnation of the balloon from the first film), but perhaps orange was a better choice against the French backdrop. If you loved THE RED BALLOON, this is a must for you.
