Then Verses Now

July 8, 2013

My reaction to watching The Red Balloon when I was a child:  “They . . . they . . . KILLED it!  Wh-Why would they DO that?”

My reaction to watching The Red Balloon today:  “Wait, balloons, wait!  HE didn’t kill it, those other kids did it.  You’re getting your revenge on the wrong kid!  Don’t do it, I’m begging you, don’t do it!”

The moral of this?

Time may have changed the way I perceive things, but I still think that film, cute as it is for the most part, has a truly horrific ending.
