Just completed reading Les Enfants Terribles by Jean Cocteau about half an hour ago. Loved this beautiful tragic tale about a tightly close knitted relationship between two siblings and their surreal game world in their private room entitled – ‘The Room’.
The two siblings reminded me of the brother and sister from The Dreamers (2003), my favourite movie on film buffs, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci.

Les Enfants Terribles, is a fascinatingly unique French novella, beautifully translated into English by Rosamond Lehmann.  Loved it, and I highly recommend it.
