a perfectly told story in under 4 minutes
17 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't understand why gems like this are not more available for viewing. Why isn't it in the Calgary Film Festival? The beautiful images of this film are perfectly pieced together to tell a pure story of how a young boy's love for his mother is ever-lasting. It pulls at your heart-strings and makes us long for our own innocence and purity of heart that we had as children. We remember that there is still hope and light in our sadness and loss.

I loved everything about this story. From the image of the dangling shoelaces to the look on the face of the balloon seller, to the swell of music as the balloon floats up to the sky. I can't wait to see what else this filmmaker has for us in the future.
