Playground ★★★½

Amazingly bleak; Joker for Belgian 8-year-olds. We really live in a playground.

It's tightly paced and totally committed to framing all of it from a child's point of view, but most of all I was impressed by the acting. Some of the best child performances I've ever seen. As a movie, it's so focused on what it's doing and so good at it that while there is little beyond the premise, it's still hard not to endorse.
