The War Of The Buttons - July 8, 2020
From the imagination of writer and director Yann Samuell comes the smash-hit adaptation of Louis Pergaud's classic 1912 novel about the rivalry between the children from two villages. Set 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 that has been kept alive for generations, humiliation is the most fearsome defeat and no tactic is too extreme; even if it necessitates fighting naked or accepting the help offered by Lanterne - a girl! She is the gang's new recruit, a tomboy full of panache and ingenuity, and it seems victory could now just be a stone's throw away. But it's not easy to wage war without getting caught by your parents.
