Forbidden Games is a critically acclaimed 1952 French war film, directed by René Clément (Gervaise, And Hope To Die).

1940, Paulette (Brigitte Fossey), a young French girl is orphaned in a Nazi air attack during the battle of France. She is befriended by Michel (Georges Poujouly), the son of a poor farmer whose family take her in to their home to care for her. Together the two children forge a tight bond, attempting to come to terms with the realities of the death and destruction that surrounds them by creating their own reality, building their own small graveyard to bury dead animals they find. In this sealed universe they have created, Paulette and Michel live their experience and most wonderful love story.

“The French authorities hated it, but the film triumphed abroad and confirmed Clemént, originally a documentarist, as a director of compassion and brilliance.” ***** (Film4)
