Mild violence and coarse language
From the furtive imagination of writer/director Yann Samuell (THE AGE OF REASON) comes the smash-hit adaptation of Louis Pergauds classic 1912 novel about the rivalry between the children from two villages. Samuell sets the action in the South of France in the 1960s, against the distant backdrop of the Algerian War. A gang of boys, aged 7 to 14 led by the intrepid Lebrac are at war with the kids of the neighbouring township, their sworn enemies. In this uncompromising battle of honour and allegiances thats been kept alive for generations, humiliation is the most fearsome defeat and no tactic is too extreme even if it necessitates fighting as naked as a worm or accepting the help offered by Lanterne a girl! Shes the gangs new recruit, a tomboy full of panache and ingenuity, and it seems victory could now just be a stones throw away. But its not easy to wage war without getting caught by your parents A huge success at the French box office in late 2011 with over 1.5 million admissions; The War of the Buttons is a cheeky family comedy about integration, independence and innocence, about conflicts big and small, and growing up with a fresh and joyful spirit that speaks to the childish delight of disobedience. Heres a film to make kids laugh, parents smile and grandparents melt with nostalgia.
The French resistance came in all shapes and sizes
