One might suggest that this is a film about culture vs. circumstances. To say it another way, we might say that reality can be subsumed and subverted by culture. 

The father maintains an act for as long as possible so that his son believes the situation they are in is much different in the act that it is in reality. 

A culture of games and fun and play serve to cover up the bleak and hopeless reality of life in the prison camp.
