FORBIDDEN GAMES

"Clément's notorious eclecticism can surely never have been so marked within a single film as in this all-purpose allegory, anti-war tract and noir-ish morality."
–TimeOut  (London)

"The film is so powerful because it does not compromise on two things: the horror of war and the innocence of childhood. Fossey's face becomes a mirror that refuses to reflect what she must see and feel.... It doesn't try to create emotions, but to observe them."
– Roger Ebert
