Jeux Interdict or Forbidden Games

Beautiful movie I just watched (another great Criterion film). Really applicable to any time when a country is at war, shows how the war turns children into monsters. It is illustrated so subtly here that you don't think of the children as monsters exactly though their way of coping with understanding death is by killing animals to put in their cemetery. The first animal victim, Jocko, Paulette's dog dies in an air raid and I found it tragic how long the little girl carries the dead dog with her.
