The Red Balloon

I just watched The Red Balloon. It was my first time seeing it, though I've known about it for a while. All I can say is, this is such a beautiful film. The music, the visuals, and the plot are all simple but very precise -- It radiates a deep sense of a childlike truth and warmth. I definitely have to make a balloon picture now. I mean, just look at the last image of the boy flying away (above) with the group of balloons -- so incredible. Please watch it if you haven't already seen it. You have no excuse, since I bet the entire little thing (34 minutes total) is on youtube.
