The children of Ballydowse & Carrickdowse engage in battles in which they cut off the buttons, shoe-laces, belts and braces of their captured opponents. This gets their opponents in trouble with parents. They go to battle in mass groups of dozens, wielding sticks & slingshots. It's a battle of strategic skills for the opposing leaders, Including one scene in which the principal gang uses an ancient war trick to overcome their opponents with successful and itchy results. - IMDb

Обычно войны длятся годами. Эту войну нужно закончить до обеда. Ни одного камня в рогатке. Никаких перестрелок в неурочное время. Таковы правила ведения войны между мальчишками двух соседствующих ирландских деревень.

Sadly, this version is not a patch on the original French version. I agree with Shadrach in that it is charming and amusing, but it lacks the atmosphere and acting qualities of the B&W 1962 film. Unlike the British, the French are not afraid to ignore the pathetic prudish attitudes of the general public.

A charming and amusing film about two rival gangs. The 'naked warriors' scene is hilarious! This is a worthy remake of the 1962 French film.
