In this gentle anti-war comedy, a class of French schoolboys divides into two factions who begin to battle each other, with the victors claiming the buttons off the clothes of the vanquished. One day, some of the boys pull a strategic coup by running into battle naked, therefore leaving their enemies nothing to steal. However, after this stunning victory, one of their number turns traitor to the other side, helping them plot a secret attack that leaves the recent champions in defeat. The informer is eventually found out and punished for his crimes, so he takes the matter to a higher authority and tells his parents he's been beaten up by bullies. Soon Mom and Dad are making trouble for their son's schoolmates, with the culprits facing a stay in juvenile hall. - Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Десятилетиями две французские деревушки, Лонгверн и Велранс, находились в состоянии войны. Но это не обычный конфликт, а война между 2 маленькими армиями, состоящими из школьников, которые на полном серьезе сражаются друг с другом. Однажды они решают в качестве трофеев захватывать пуговицы, ремни, шнурки противоположной стороны. Выигрывает та сторона, которая соберет больше вещей другой стороны. Простенькая комедия из провинциальной жизни, которая пользовалась огромным успехом во Франции. В 1995 году американцы выпустили ремейк этой картины, который прошел практически незамеченным.

This is a truly marvellous film, which in terms of pulling out a great many stops, gives us a wonderful insight into childhood and innocence. The nearest the British ever came to this was the original B&W 'Lord of the Flies'.
