Some may be disappointed that new film, ‘ Balloon ’ is not the story of Kim Kardashian’s arse whereas the truth is that ‘Balloon’ is based on the thrilling true story of two families and their daring escape from East Germany to the West during the cold war.
In 1979 the Strelzyks and the Wetzels embark on one of the most spectacular and daring escapes from communist East Germany. Rather than risk landmines, barbed-wire and spring-guns at the border if they were to cross on foot, they plan to fly over the heavily fortified border in a homemade hot air balloon. When an initial attempt fails the secret police are alerted, but the families continue to plot and stitch together another balloon in secret, all the while living in fear of discovery and certain imprison.
There’s also a great closing credits sequence which shows multiple photos of the real-life subjects of the film including hospital photos of Wetzel (whose leg was broken on impact when flying the home made balloon) and East German crime scene photos of the first failed balloon attempt
