Storyline

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.

Good family movie
16 April 2000 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

I just watched this movie for the first time, and I can honestly say that you don't have to be a kid to enjoy this family movie. It took me a little while to get into this film, but once the "war" started, I found myself enjoying the story and even laughing out loud at some of the humor. The kids did a fine job and I hope that they all look back at this film with fond memories.
