Storyline

'The Hedgehogs' are a group of youngsters who are trying to gain control of the empty space between the blocks of flats, which they want to convert into a basketball court. The resistance of the neighbors is soon overcome and the court is laid down. Training courses in basketball for kids are set up. The ambitious coach is selecting only those of the boys who are able to carry out his most absurd orders. Two of them happen to be late, so he immediately fires them from the team. Thus the 'hedgehogs' war' against the indifference of the adult breaks out. The boys do not give up readily. They win the war through inventiveness, wit and with the help of the 'good guys' among the adults. But presently a rude pushy neighbor, who has no other concern but the safety of his expensive Ford car, returns from abroad.

One Of The Best Bulgarian Movies!
11 June 2005 | by pleven4everSee all my reviews

"The Hedgehogs' War" is good known for a few generations of Bulgarian kids. Actually this is one of the most famous Bulgarian movies for children and their grown parents of all time. The battle of the kids with the people from their block to win the right to play a basketball in the backyard becomes a war of the generations, you will laugh with they plans how to get a basket from the school, how to stay in the local basketball team and becomes a future champions, with the first excitements of love, honor and friendship, everything with the background of the famous song, performed by Asen Kisimov, "Where Are My Children's books, Tell Me, My Dusty Box..":-) I personally give the film 10 out of 10, like every other grown with that movie Bulgarian kid will do!
