War of the Buttons France 2011 – 95min.
War rages between school kids from the two neighboring villages of Longeverne et Velrans in the French countryside during the 1960s, a never-ending power struggle minutely prepared during recess. Prisoners return without pants and their buttons torn off, a tactic that means the victims are both humiliated by their adversaries and scolded by their parents. The war is limited not only to the pupils of the schools, their respective teachers also have a hard time meeting without getting into nasty arguments. The war is far from over when the head of the small army of Longeverne has to leave his village and name a successor.
