5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Memories, 12 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Red Balloon / White Mane [Region 2] [import] (DVD)
I remember watching this film by pure chance in the early 60's on tv and more than anything else I watched as a child, it has simply stayed with me for a lifetime. Although I only watched it once, I can still remember the story perfectly and many of the scenes are like pictures in my mind. It's pure magic! As an almost silent film, I don't know how it made such a lasting impact on me, but it did. Maybe kids were different back then when life was simpler. And yes, life was simpler. Not less stressful, perhaps, but simpler. A jewel of a film and I wish Amazon would get the DVD back in stock, preferably in Region 2, please!!!!

I completely agree. I saw this in Edinburgh in the 1950s and it is a most evocative film. Why is it so hard to get? And yes, it really needs to be Region 2 for we Europeans. I just hope someone gets a good print of this into electronic form before the filmstock deteriorates.
