The following French short, about a red balloon with a life of its own that decides to follow a young boy around post-war Paris, is probably one of the most sublime visual cinematic experiences you’re ever likely to have.

Disarmingly minimalist yet remarkably profound, Albert Lamorisse’s timeless classic is testament to the fact that the simplest story can have a huge impact when told with both love and care.

If you liked this movie, you might want to check out our rather humble though fast growing collection of Films of the Week.
