The Forbidden Toy

Yugoslavia (MIFF 1986)

Director: Zrinko Ogresta

Lonely boy. too much alone, tires of his toys and finally finds a friend — a little mouse — but the friendship is short-lived. This small domestic tragedy is narrated without dialogue and with great understatement, by the accumulation and repetition of small details of domestic rituals.
