« ‘Qiqiu’ explores the relationship between reality and soul. Tibetan people believe that only the flesh perishes while the soul lives on. When the Buddhist faith crashes with the reality of modern society, they now have a choice to make. » (Pema Tseden, réalisateur du film)
« [Tseden’s] beautiful, funny, and tragic film, ‘Balloon’, is both a gorgeously intimate family drama and an idiosyncratic artistic statement flecked with humor and sorrow, but alive always to the co-existence of the banal with the spiritual. » (Variety)
