In 1952, French director Rene Clement created one of the first movies to deal with the horrors of war. Forbidden Games is a powerful and heartbreaking film about a orphaned girl who becomes attached to a boy whose family has taken her in and together, the two attempt to cope with the death and destruction of war in their own special way.
Roger Ebert recommended the film from his “Great Movies” review on his Facebook page. He wrote, “Here is a film about children using their powers of fantasy and denial to deal with death in wartime. A modern film would back away from the horror and soften and sentimentalize it. It would become a ‘children’s film.’ But in all times children have survived experiences that no child should have to endure.”
It is a timeless classic, that will touch your heart.
