One of the most successful children's films ever made.
This charming story centers around a lonely little boy who finds that a red balloon magically has a life of its own. As he chases the colorful, teasing object through the Paris streets, the child encounters a world full of adventure and fascinating people... but nothing can prepare him for his final experience with his new and playful friend.
Also available from Home Vision Cinema as part of a double-feature with "White Mane".
According to Georges Sadoul, 25,000 balloons were used in the film.
