My brother is trying to remember a movie. I've tried googling but I only find "The Necessities of Life" and he insists it's not that. The main character is a young Inuit boy removed from his village to a hospital due to Tuberculosis. He befriends a girl there but is separated from her, maybe due to his ethnicity. He is in WWII where his plane is shot down. Post-war the two meet in Paris where they ride on top (?) of a hot-air balloon.
