During Christmas holidays, the children of a small village split themselves into two groups, build a huge snow fort, and begin preparing a week-long snowball war. The youthful rivalry opens up linger tension among some group members, and helps members see each other differently than they had before. This is particularly true for the leaders of the two groups, Luc and Sophie, who find themselves torn between admiring each other from a distance, yet leading their own group to victory.
One of the more successful movies in Quebec filmmakers' "Contes pour tous" (Tales for All) line of films, La Guerre Des Tuques is a simple story about kids who form 2 groups that will engage in snowball fights during the Christmas holidays.
Having seen this film recently for the first time since I was a kid, I was amazed at how it hasn't lost any of its appeal after all these years. Adults watching this will get a warm case of nostalgia (as well as some good laughs) and kids will be treated to a tale of friendship, loss and peace all while having a great time. I would say the main theme here is youthful innocence coming to a head with the realities of life.
I recommend this film to anyone. They don't make em' like this anymore.
