The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

To show the horrors of war through the eyes of a child was best used in the "Life is beautiful" by Benigni. I know it is a book adaptation, so not much that the director could do to make it better. As a matter of fact, after the Russian war movies ("The cranes are flying", "Come and see" etc.) this one looks very artificial, if you can use the word to characterize it.
