Children clash in ‘War of the Buttons’

In French writer/director Christophe Barratier’s “War of the Buttons,” we find ourselves, spring 1944, in a relatively isolated French village. The Nazis have a dominant presence but remain secondary to the turf wars of two groups of boys. Their battles’ spoils consist of buttons and shoelaces, leaving the vanquished with pants falling down and shirts flapping.
