The film opens as we watch one of Nena's 99 luftballoons float into Kelly Town. Albert is born and a proud dad shows the town by holding Albert out over a balcony. Albert quickly grows up in the film and as a toddler he accidentally destroys the town statue of an air balloon captain. Albert and his friend leave town to be the captain of a hot air balloon and fly it back to town and also be pirates.
I am not sure if everything in the film has a positive message for kids. The kids want to steal and form a scoundrels club where they kidnap girls and hold them in their basement...but they wouldn't have to kiss them. The film is a French version of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, taking place in an older time period and place not well defined.
Good 3D graphics. An easy film to watch.
