‘War of the Buttons‘ Trailer - Two rival gangs of kids from different French villages engage in a merciless play war.
“They would fight for each other… like never before.”
The Weinstein Company has unveiled an official US trailer for Christophe Barratier’s (The Chorus) latest period drama War of the Buttons, based on Louis Pergaud’s 1912 novel La Guerre des boutons. With a cast featuring Guillaume Canet, Laetitia Casta, Jean Texier, and Ilona Bachelier, the French-set World War II drama follows two rival gangs from neighbouring villages who put aside their differences to protect a Jewish girl from the Nazis.
Despite its melancholic context, the trailer indicates a heart-warming and overly uplifting feature, complete with hammy music and voiceover work. That said, this looks quite fun, to be honest, some good French cinema.
With an American release on July 18th, it will be interesting to see what tone the film eventually settles on. Enjoy the trailer, containing children with flaming arrows.

Set in occupied WWII France, War of the Buttons tells the tale of pre-teen rebel Lebrac (newcomer Jean Texier) and the “war” he leads between two rival kid gangs from neighboring villages.
Once Lebrac falls for Violette (Ilona Bachelier), a young Jewish girl who is new in town and in danger of being exposed by the Nazis, the children are faced with putting their own conflicts aside to protect her and confront the very real war happening around them.
Directed by Academy Award nominee Christophe Barratier (Les Chorus) War of the Buttons features model/actress Laetitia Casta (Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, Arbitrage), actor/filmmaker Guillaume Canet (Farewell, Tell No One) and Welcome to the Sticks star Kad Merad. The film is produced and co-written by Thomas Langmann (Academy Award winner for The Artist).
