Post Movies involving balloons
I was wondering if anybody knows movies involving balloons. I know one titled: "L'uomo dei cinque palloni" (Break up in EN version). The protagonist of the film is Marcello Mastroianni (cinema lovers surley know him) and he's very obsessed about balloons, his purpose is discover how long is possible inflate a balloon before its bursting. A remarkable scene (above all for poppers ) is when he goes in the club with hundreds balloons and he explains his obsession to some women; then everybody in the club is gone to pop all the balloons, someone blow to pop and someone bursting with foot. I advise you to watch it. Anyway, do you know any movies involving balloons?

We should make one. No nudity, keep it wide appeal. Get it launched and the world will play with balloons in all the ways we want them too. Hmmmm

Sigh..... The most wonderful movie I've ever seen was "The Red Balloon"
I cought it on Netflix a while back. It was in french with subtitles but the movie hardly has dialogue. It's about a young boy who was walking to school one day & he finds a magic red balloon which is alive & follows him everywhere. The red balloon would float outside his classroom window waiting for the boy & when school let out the red balloon would follow him home. Even if i didn't have a balloon fetish i would still love that movie as it is simply beautiful. Just hearing the boy call out: " Ballon! Ballon! Baaalloooon!" It just warms my heart...the affection he shows for that red balloon...

Warning, spoilers ahead

One day when the boy is walking home a crowd of bullies chase the boy & the red balloon...they become seperated. The red balloon tries to flee by floating down alleyways....the bullies throw rocks & one hits the red balloon.... it slowly starts to deflate & crumple as it sinks to the ground. Then....

STOMP!!!!

One of the bullies finishes off the red balloon by crushing it under his foot...
I cried my eyes out just like the boy in the movie.

The boy is heartbroken...but then something wonderful happens...all the balloons in his home town come alive & start float to him...escaping venders, parties everywhere you'd fine balloons! Hundreds of balloons floating through the streets & buildings! The balloons find the boy & they huddle around him in a big cluster. He starts to float up. The movie ends with the boy floating out over his town & then away

I highly recommend The Red Balloon...it definitely comes with some awesome feels

Movies with balloons...interesting topic.

A few years ago I was in Albuquerque and I wanted to buy some fresh balloons, so I went into a party store of some sort and got some. The cashier was nosy and asked me what I was going to do with balloons...

Without skipping a beat, and entirely impromptu, I said something like "We're working on a short film, and we need these as one of the props."
