ENDS Thursday June 12
A mysterious red balloon affectionately follows seven-year-old Simon (Simon Iteanu) around Paris in this imaginative tale. His mother Suzanne (Juliet Binoche) is a puppeteer who uses her vocal talents to bring life to the shows she writes. Completely absorbed in her new show, Suzanne becomes overwhelmed by the complications of modern daily life, so she decides to hire Song (Song Fang), a Taiwanese film student, to help her care for Simon. Inspired by the 1956 classic, The Red Balloon. Feeling at times almost improvisatory, this first European-made film by writer/director Hou Hsiao Hsien (Flowers of Shanghai, Millennium Mambo) is a poetic delight. Co-starring Hippolyte Girardot and Louis Margolin.
