le ballon rouge

Do you recognize the little boy and his red balloon? When I was a little girl I had this book, Le Ballon Rouge, and I loved it so much! It’s the story of a little boy and his best friend, a red balloon. It has fabulous pictures, and the story is really cute and touching!
However, I did not realize it was also a movie! Not only is it a movie, (looks just like the book, must have been one shoot for both the book and movie) but you can see the movie on Google video! I doubt it will last, movies never stay up for free for long! So if you are interested, you should go check it out! You’ll enjoy it!

I had this movie when I was little!
It wasn’t in french though and was simply called
“The Red Balloon”

you should check out this poem that dearmeglow wrote about free people called “free is fun”:
i was feeling constrained and i wanted to be free
i walked into this store, what was reflected was me
the colors, the patterns, the materials i felt
an instant of silence turned into a song that was belt
a hanger was hanging
draping velvet and lace
the reflection of the mannequin
was such a familiar face
i glanced at the socks
placed rings on my fingers
made friends with the glasses
dreamt i could be a singer
headbands for dancing
along strands of our hair
each piece in this store,
i would gladly wear
as closing time approaches
i feel sad to leave
these people are my friends
and they make me feel free
