'Balloon' trivia and fun facts

Actually three This film depicts the construction and launching of two improvised hot-air balloons. There were actually three. The first was an utter failure, because they had utilized a cotton-based fabric that was porous and leaked air massively.
Farewell to comedy 'Wind of Freedom' is the first thriller directed by Michael Bully Herbig, a director specializing in comedy.
Second adaptation 'Ballon' is based on the true story of two families who tried to cross the East and West German border traveling aboard a balloon. However, it is not the first film to narrate these facts, since in 1982, John Hurt starred in 'Fuga de noche', film that dealt with the same events.
