Mark Feeney. 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. Tomris Laffly. Lacking the nail-biting suspense that the story would seem to call for, Balloon quickly deflates.
Frank Scheck. There is nothing objectionable about Michael Bully Herbig's glossy political thriller, "Balloon," but there's nothing particularly exciting about it, either.
Jeannette Catsoulis. It feels like an attempt to transpose the mix of thrills and prestige of a film like Argo onto a different true story, a paint-by-numbers approach that's far less compelling than drawing outside the lines would have been.
Michael Nordine. It is a very well-acted picture with a lot of emotion conveyed in the performances that also effectively delves into the strains of marital and child relations, while at the same time the sacrifices we make to better the lives of our children.
Nick Boyd. Nicholas Bell. Pat Padua. Balloon revels in exploring the details of every possible kind of danger these people face, so it's a nerve-wincher, a cracking good escape thriller, but that's not all it is.
Kyle Smith. It's all somewhat schematic and messy, a glossy portrait of tumultuous times. It's also quite entertaining, anchored by solid performances, and a contagiously well-meaning spirit.

Wetzel worked as an automobile mechanic and Strelzyk opened a TV repair shop in Bad Kissingen. Owing to pressure on them from Stasi spies, the Strelzyks moved to Switzerland in The West German weekly magazine Stern paid Strelzyk and Wetzel for exclusive rights to the story.
East Germany immediately increased border security, closed all small airports close to the border, and ordered the planes kept farther inland.
Mail from East Germany to the families was prohibited. Erich Strelzyk learned of his brother's escape on the ZDF news and was arrested three hours after the landing in his Potsdam apartment.
The arrest of family members was standard procedure to deter others from attempting escape. The three were eventually released with the help of Amnesty International.
The escape has been portrayed in two films: Night Crossing and Ballon The former, also called With the Wind to the West — the English translation of the German title, was an English-language film produced by Disney.
The Strelzyks were reportedly "moved to tears" at the screening of the movie at Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Peter Strelzyk died in at age 74 after a long illness. In , the balloon was put on permanent exhibition at the Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte: Museum.

Balloon review — airborne escape caper crash lands. It's worth watching and highly recommended. Eciting from the first Minute til to the end.
Great moving Camera, that is engrossing. Impressed and based on a True Story. Powerfull Soudtrack recorded by a real Orchestra.
Bully Herbig new Genre Thrill is perhaps the best Movie that he made. I can only recommend The change from Herbig was worthwhile. You can hardly breathe in the 2 hours of the movie.
A brilliant German actor ensemble gives itself the honor. Among others, Thomas Kretschmann, who brilliantly plays the diabolical Stasi lieutenant colonel.
Figures with which one can identify oneself exist on both sides. However, it seems completely exaggerated that an IM could be on every corner.
In Berlin in front of the hotel and the embassy for sure. But in a small village? However, it is credible that even a deaf party member wants to see West TV.
But one immediately thinks of a trap. Likewise, one should be careful with jokes about the party chairman. I am looking forward to more "serious" films by Herbig.
Absolutely stunning in all aspects. The courage of the people who undertook this task is breathtaking. No matter how severe the political oppression is, the desire to escape is so strong.
The movie-watching mood was successfully mobilized, and all the way nervous. SilverOrlov 15 November Incredibly strong movie. I did not expect that with such a simple description it turns out that I, with my experience of watching films and the desire often just to skip many boring moments, I will watch this film in one breath This movie is amazing on multiple levels.
I love Michael Herbig most for his funny stuff, but one cannot deny his bandwidth as an actor and director, his acting in the thriller Four against the bank was hilarious, his movie Buddy was heartwarming and touching, but still: his genius mostly shows in his comedy stuff - so far.
And this story is a gripping one. You wouldn't believe it if it wasn't true. A story about families, about a misanthropic system where people on each side were victims pretty much , a torn country and most of all, of course, a sensational escape.
A lot of suspense, a lot of great actors including a handsome Thomas Kretschmann - who escaped the GDR in himself - turned into an ugly secret police agent and performing creepily and brilliantly , a great eye for historical details - if you want to know some of the burdens that happened to white, European, non-Nazi Germans yes, they had to suffer, too after the war, this is an entertaining, thrilling, moving, accurate way of doing it.
Highly recommendable. A history lesson that is also a thriller - what else can you wish for. There isn't much bad to write about Ballon.
I don't know what people could dislike about this movie. Captured by East German guards, Rohrbach then spent two years in prison. Today, she's still an adventurer, traveling far and wide for her research and book-writing.
Axel Mitbauer, a GDR national swim team member, used pure muscle to flee. In , the year-old swam across the Baltic Sea from Boltenhagen to Lübeck's bay area when guards turned search lights off to allow them to cool.
He smeared himself with masses of petroleum jelly to protect himself against the icy temperatures.
Over 5, people tried to escape the GDR via the Baltic — by boat, air mattress, swimming or even submarine. At least adults and children died in the endeavor.
According to Bodo Müller, who wrote a book with his wife Christine entitled "Across the Baltic Sea to Freedom," people actually succeeded between the Berlin Wall's construction in August and its fall on November 9, There were the more classic escape attempts, such as by this woman, who is pictured being pulled out of a West Berlin shaft in October The shaft led to an escape tunnel connecting East to West Berlin.
One of several ingenious underground border crossings, 57 people escaped through the so-called "Tunnel 57" over two days before it was discovered in an East Berlin street.
The image circulated around the world, with Schumann ostensibly the first of over 2, East German police and soldiers who made the attempt.
Schumann committed suicide 37 years later in In September , this woman first pushed her dog and then her shopping bag out of this window and into a rescue net provided by West German fire fighters.
Though some people tried to pull her back into the building that stood on the border in East Berlin, she persisted and climbed out a back window to freedom in West Berlin.
While most attempted escape by foot, thus risking being shot or stepping on mines, one group was exceptionally inventive.
In September , 14 East Germans, among them children, were smuggled across the border in a refrigerated truck as they lay under the carcasses of slaughtered pigs being transported to the West.
Surely the most compelling of escape attempts was by hot air balloon. They reached a height of 2, meters 8, ft. That endeavor inspired both the British-American film, "Night Crossing," as well as the thriller, "Balloon," directed by Michael Herbig.
The Strelzyks had actually attempted a hot air balloon escape 10 weeks previously, but their balloon crashed on East German territory, just a few hundred meters away from the border.
East German border patrols found the tattered remains. He also talked to the families. Herbig says bringing this story to the big screen is important to him personally.The German film Balloon explores the Iron Curtain from an unusual angle: above. Two ordinary families living a routine existence in Poessneck, a small East German town in , yearn to escape by.
