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.
Peu de fans le savent, mais Cléo, la chienne de Pierre, devait être à l'origine un chien appelé César. À son arrivée sur le plateau de tournage, l'animal incarnant l'attachant Saint-Bernard s'est avéré être une immense femelle. «Elle s'appelait Lucy et venait d'accoucher. Dans le script original, le chien de Pierre est un mâle, alors nous avons dû le changer. Lorsqu'il a fallu choisir un nouveau nom, l'un des enfants a proposé de l'appeler Cléopâtre au lieu de César», se souvient André Melançon. See more »
i also remember seeing this as a kid many times and i have always loved it. i just saw it again today for the first time since at least 1985 or something and i still think it's good! i like seeing movies in which we get to participate in kids' activities and how they go about things. that fort was the coolest fort ever and i remember always wanting a fort like that and having this pretend snowball war with cannons that actually shoot snowballs, and to run around in a warm snowsuit and hockey helmet. it does have it's sad part - the end where cleo the dog dies. it wasn't sad to me this time around, but i know that i was sad when i was younger. definitely try to check this out if you have little kids around - it kinda reminds me of "A Christmas Story".
