La Guerre des Boutons DVD
La Guerre des Boutons DVD (War of the Buttons DVD) - 2011 film directed by Yann Samuell. In French with optional French or English subtitles. It is 1960, a village in the south of France. A gang of boys, aged between 7 and 14, led by the intrepid Lebrac, is at war with children of a neighboring village, their sworn enemies. It is a war that has lasted for generations, a war without end and without concession. To defend their honor and proclaim their loyalty, the boy warriors will do anything to show that they are the stronger side - even if it means fighting battles in the nude or admitting a girl (horror!) into their esteemed ranks. The only thing these brave soldiers fear is to be caught by their parents after a skirmish has left them deprived of buttons and with their clothes in tatters. Stars Eric Elmosnino, Fred Testot, Mathilde Seigner and Alain Chabat. Rated G in Canada (but there is a lot of bad language throughout - apparent especially with English subtitles), 109 minutes.
