[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
Yes, it was disappointing. At first the gentle pace appeals: the innocuous flight of the insistent ballon is a metaphor of childhood delight as it follows the little boy, but the theme never really develops. The domestic quibbles and trivial travails of Juliette Binoche are pointless. The neo-realist cinematography is irritating: we endlessly view scenes through opaque windows. There is no dramatic tension. Better to have re-released the 1956 classic than this 'homage'.
