Bas and Ziggy are longstanding best (school)mates, but while stronger Bas does wood-shop, smarter Ziggy enters prep-school. The knaves stay friends. At the annual summer camp 'construction village', each now sticks to his new school gang in the tower-building competition, and as girls get involved, really turn on each-other as the prank war escalates, even a kid brother being kidnapped for 'ransom' in building material. Yet when in trouble, the old friendship takes over again. Written by KGF Vissers

Delightful Movie For the Family
9 September 2016 | by mstrohm-705-614673See all my reviews

Scrap Wood War is about two friends, Ziggy and Bas, finishing Elementary school who due to circumstances causing personal disappointment and jealousy find their friendship tested. As an educator who works with children, I found the plot and sequence of events very believable. The acting was average to above average. I appreciated the way the boys and their friendship was portrayed. Sensitive, but not mushy. I am sure there are many elementary children who will identify with the story plot - friends allowing emotions and the difficulties of growing up, with all its coming changes, to get in the way of a friendship. So too will children relate to the vacillating feelings of the two friends who find themselves wanting to restore the friendship but not sure how, then getting angry with each other all over again. There is by my count 3 swears in the English subtitles and two brief, mild sexual innuendos. But overall, expect this to be one of those movies where you can sit right next to your child and never blush. I recommend the movie and would even highly recommend it if you have a son who is struggling with a friendship and lacks the emotional vocabulary to discuss it with you. Watch the movie together and use it to open discussion. Or, just watch and enjoy.
