Pure cinema

"Heat Waves" 
Directed by Sophie Lorain
Screenplay by Michel Marc Bouchard 

In Heat Waves (Les grandes chaleurs) there is a scene where two lovers - he is 19, she's 52, meet his mom.

The three stand outside as the mom learns that her son sleeps with the woman about her age. In shock, various emotions galloping through her face, she unconsciously releases a cluster of balloons (it’s the son’s birthday party) into the air.

A pure cinema moment.
