La guerre des tuquesDVD - 2009 | French
During "show and tell" just before Christmas break, a young, ethereal boy named Luke shows off a war bugle, a present from his veteran grandfather. After the children are dismissed for the year, Luke rounds up the gang and proposes the group split in two and engage in a mock war a "war of toques," as the French of the film title states. The group outlines the parameters of the battle, and it becomes clear from the start that Luke rules with an authoritarian fist. This angers some of the other members, causing a second, more democratic party to be formed in opposition led by Mark. Mark's group extends both the boundaries of race and gender, as he recruits nerdy Asian kid, Francois, and the new girl in town, Sophie.
