my heart is a balloon

art/history: this is still one of my all-time favourite films. i had the picture book when i was a kid & it was a coup de foudre. i was fascinated by pascal & his hilly menilmontant home. this tome singlehandedly infected me with a chronic case of francophilia which still plagues me today. i was only five - & i hadn't even seen the film! its writer/producer/director, albert lamorisse, not only bequeathed us 'the red balloon' (released in #france #otd in 1956), but also invented the board game, 'risk'.
