Most of the respondents have reviewed "White Balloon" as an art film. I would like to advocate its a great kids' movie. My kids (9 and 10) watched it entranced. To them its a movie about a real life situation that any kid could get into. It never patronizes children but treats them as the center of the film with their own lives and needs.
Something else which escapes the other reviewers is the filming is all done from a child's level.
