Flight of the Red Balloon

Honored with opening night of the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival and a hit at the New York, Toronto and AFI fests, THE FLIGHT OF THE RED BALLOON is simply one of the most acclaimed films of 2008.

This French production by legendary Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao Hsien stars Juliette Binoche as divorced mom having issues with newly hired babysitter Song (Song Fang) and her 7 year old son Simon (Simon Iteanu).

"A quiet, unassuming and flawless tribute to Paris, to the spirit of childhood and to the ability of art to compensate for some of the painful imperfections of life...a typically subtle and astute performance [by Binoche]." - Scott, NY Times

"Juliette Binoche gives her best performance in years." - Anderson, Time Out NY
