Balloon

Drama, History, Thriller 2h 5m 2019

Thriller set in East Germany in 1979, based on the astonishing true story of how two ordinary families attempted to cross the East German border in a homemade hot air balloon. After initially failing, they use their courage and ingenuity to make a second attempt, while the East German Police are on their tail.

“Filmmaker Herbig and his team prove to be especially adept at contriving situations where anything anyone does causes fear, anxiety, stress and worry, leaving everyone, very much including the audience, existing on the knife’s edge of unremitting tension” ~ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
