useless and business, not a kid story!
20 October 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The book (Pergaud's novel 1913) is now part of the public domain, that's why there're two films this year about this story.

No very big interests, It's looks like mainly and only as a business movie.

Despite a good mechanic and good kid casting and pictures (with a little bit too much works with numeric computer); the story is far from the film "la guerre des boutons" (1962).

The background of the WW2 become most important than the war between the two villages. This background is here only for a most efficient drama of the story, because they don't know written and do simple and efficient story and make movie like, for example, the old one "la guerre des boutons"(1962). They forget something with the money's attractiveness: It's mainly a kids story not adults story! (They're a parallelism between kids and adults but adults have just adults place in the original one).
