The Thin Blue Line: A Radical Classic By Charles Musser
Inside the Pink Stable By Chuck Stephens
Albert Lamorisse’s exquisite family classic The Red Balloon is drifting down to the Miami Beach Cinematheque on December 22. This simple, profoundly felt tale of a lonely little boy finding unlikely companionship is not only wonderfully entertaining, it’s long been a veritable rite of passage for young viewers all over the world. You may remember how touching the film is, but do you recall how visually splendid? That lollipop-red, perfectly round balloon set against a slate-gray Paris! Watch the first few minutes of the film below for a reminder of its singular beauty.
