Movie Info

A popular and frequently filmed novel by Louis Pergaud was the source for La Guerre des Gosses (Kids' War). The story is predicated on a centuries-old feud between the villages of Longeverne and Velrans. The main bone of contention is the weather: the citizens of Longeverne pray for rain for their cabbage crop, while the residents of Velrans are equally fervent in their prayers for sunshine. The conflict trickles down to the children of each town, who ultimately stage a mock battle which serves to reconcile the two communities...at least temporarily. The most famous screen versions of La Guerre Des Gosses, both titled The War of the Buttons, were filmed in 1962 and 1994. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
