Forbidden Games (Jeux Interdits)

Drama, War 1h 26m 1952

Aroview: After her parents are killed in an air raid during WWII, a small girl makes friends with a peasant boy, and the pair gradually come to terms with the death that surrounds them by building a pet cemetery.

An enchanting film about a brutal subject, this is especially poignant thanks to the terrific central performances from the two children, and remains one of the more haunting depictions of war told through the eyes of innocence.
