Honestly, it is definitely one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. Indeed, you have in the opening scene this famous melancholic guitar tune which keeps coming back throughout the whole thing. Then, in the very first scene, you have a 5 ye... read more

A timeless evocation of childhood innocence corrupted, René Clément’s mythical and heartbreakingly real Forbidden Games tells the story of a young girl orphaned by war and the farm boy she joins in a fantastical world of macabre play.
