Anyone care to explain why they think this is a good film to show to their, or anyone's kids? Frankly I'm worried enough about the message it sends to adults.
I have similar qualms about Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I'm not sure what bad message Life Is Beautiful would send though ? It's a fable... I suppose you might argue that sugarcoating horror is bad, but you can't very well show Son of Saul to children, right ?

Edit: I see that you don't think this subject should be approached with children at all. I strongly disagree. You can't teach any history to children without sugarcoating it, and WW2 is no different.

It depends on what "sugarcoating" means. Sure showing images of starving prisoners being led to gas chambers may be a bit much for a 9 year old, but I think there's a difference between implying or describing, but not showing, the more horrific things that might be too much for a child to grapple with vs minimizing the gravity of the situation (say by showing a less bad version of reality) to make it a more palatable subject. Considering Life is Beautiful is a divisive film for it's approach in general it's not surprising that it'd be extra divisive as a suggestion for children.

Personally I'd say a kid under 10 is generally not going to be able to really grapple with a direct film about concentration camps and the subject would be better introduced by a film where concentration camps are peripheral. Their reality distanced rather than sugarcoated or minimized. I haven't seen The Diary of Anne Frank, but subject wise that seems like it'd be an approach that could be honest about the subject without needing to show the extent of the reality.

In general you can introduce the idea that the Nazis were people who exterminated millions of people and were really bad and racist without actually showing the exact details of how they did that. But not showing it is different from showing a neutered version. This goes for a lot of subjects, saying this really bad thing happened and describing it in generalities leaves a blurry picture which can be made clearer in time, showing a neutered but seemingly clear depiction leaves a precise image which is much easier for a child to mistake for an accurate one.

If you had to show a WWII film to a kid, which film would you show?
Can't think of any at the moment that I would want to show to a kid, and like I said I don't think cinema is a good way of introducing these ideas to them. If good old textbooks don't do the trick and some form of media is required, I'm sure there are educational history programmes that are made for that purpose.

That's not true at all, I just don't think they should be initiated into the subject by the way of Life is Beautiful. Peaceful has said it better than I ever can, but in my own, less articulate words:

Sure you need to find a way to ease children into subject matters like the holocaust, but withholding certain details and dripfeeding it to them over time seems to me a much better method of doing so rather than showing them Life is Beautiful which can be taken as: "hey all these horrible things happened in the war, but it ain't really all that bad!". As an educational tool, the film is just all wrong tonally speaking; getting children to associate the holocaust with humor is the last thing I want to do - first impressions matter, especially when you're so young. Sure, you can sit next to them the whole time and explain why these things aren't actually funny...though at that point you have to wonder why you're showing them this film in the first place. Children are very receptive to humor, it's going to be more trouble than its worth to undo whatever ideas the film may or may not have imprinted on their minds.

I don't agree that Life Is Beautiful is saying "it wasn't all that bad". I watched it when I was relatively young (9-10 I think ?) and I certainly didn't get that from it. Its emotional power relies on it being a story of survival in horrible circumstances. You certainly get the idea that surviving this is essentially a miracle... in fact I find it somewhat amusing that we're having this conversation, since the whole film is explicitely about protecting children from horror by telling them stories, by making it all seem like a fairytale with a happy ending.

Really I now wish I had voted for it. :lol:

Our personal opinion of the film in question aside, I think we also have very different approaches to children(possibly influenced by our own upbringings), they definitely need to be protected from the horrors of the world, but "telling them stories and making everything seem like a fairytale with a happy ending" is not the way I would go about it, I believe being overprotective does more harm than good in the long run.

Grave of the Fireflies (which I guess is still coming) is the WWII film I'd show my kids.

I'm saying this is what the film does and what it is about. I'm not arguing that we should always shelter children from everything, and neither is the film I think.

I thought of that, but I think that might be more due to the subtitles. I approached creating my list trying not to think about language and subtitles, and recommended each film based on if I would suggest it for a child who spoke that language. I think kids 10+ might enjoy it, especially seeing someone their own age being the star of the film, but I could very much be wrong. :D

But it's just a kid running from one house to another to return a book. Nothing really happens. Kids want to be entertained.

I think I saw Where Eagles Dare, The Guns of Navarone, Stalag 17, The Great Escape, and the Dirty Dozen several times each by the time I was 10. These movies neither harmed me nor prevented me from developing a more thorough understanding of World War II as I grew older.

I haven't seen it, (also haven't voted for this poll) but a good reason to chose this seems to me to be exact opposite; to show non-Iranian kids that an Iranian kids is just like them.

Yep, it's an adaptation of a Roald Dahl book after all. Certainly "darker" than your average PG-rated kids film, sure, but it can still be comfortably called a kids/family film.

My brother saw this in theaters when he was 7 and suffered afterwards from ongoing nightmares. They only stopped when we switched bedrooms (I was 5 at the time and had not seen the movie).

I saw it when I was 9 and was mostly annoyed by how it was different from the book. It didn't seem notably scary to me, and I was a kid who was easily scared.

Yeah I’ve heard similar accounts. Maybe it’s not a “kids-of-ALL-ages” kind of film, more of a kids-of-a-certain age...I dunno, maybe 10 and up. But this stuff of course varies from kid to kid and their sensibilities. My situation with the film was similar to what Peaceful just said (except in my case, not caring much about differences from the book).

The under 18 demographic rated it 8.0 on IMDb (but only 5 people voted so it's not statistically significant).

Jumanji is one of the scariest films I ever watched, but that's probably because I was 7 when I watched it.

Pinocchio is one of the few books that I've read, and I like the book more than the film.

Has anyone seen this mini-series? https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/le+ ... pinocchio/

According to some reviews it's the best adaptation, but I haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

Back to WW II films: Les grandes Grandes Vacances (2015) is a French animated TV series (10 26-min eps) about two children who end up staying with their grandparents for the duration and have various adventures with a gang of kids who are trying to help the Resistance. There is a Jewish boy who gets taken away in the course of the story. In the words of one reviewer on IMDb:

"I watched this with my two kids 5 and 8 and they had a multitude of questions. They really enjoyed it and it sent the 8 year old on a WWII reading binge that he's not out of yet. Done really well and alludes to a lot of the darker aspects of the war without dealing with it head on."

Liking these results so far. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh seems pretty low though.

If it was "recommendations for children under 5", it probably would've been near the top, because not many good films are appropriate for children that young.

I'm surprised the Russian version isn't ranked higher. I thought it was popular on this forum. It was #24 in the Russian poll.

Oh, good. I was worried about this one not making the cut. You should hear the howls of laughter whenever I show the climax to one of my classes.
