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.
I watched this movie when I was about 8 years old. I taped it and watched it over and over. I loved it so much I even borrowed the novel from the library and red it twice. As a child I didn't read a lot of books for fun so this was a first. I have not seen this movie for 15 years. I recently saw it on TV. It wasn't till now that I realized that it was dubbed. I always thought that it was originally in English.
This movie is on my list of favourite movies. It's not a spectacular, oscar winning movie but it just brings back memories of how much I use to love it. The ending always left me crying. The values it teaches still rings true today. War does nothing even if it is with snowballs.
