A fun animated adventure. 3/5 stars
With school out for the winter holiday break, the kids in a small mountain village divide into two armies for the snowball fight to end them all.
While sensitive, bugle-playing Luke (voiced by Angela Gallupo) marshals his troops, new girl Sophie (Lucinda Davis) rallies her smaller forces to defend the magnificent snow fort designed by local brainbox Frankie (Sandra Oh).
This enjoyable animated remake of the hit 1984 French-Canadian live-action children’s film La guerre des tuques wraps lots of boisterous fun around a gentle anti-war message – and also has a surprisingly sad side, too, involving the title canine character.
This film premieres on Saturday 22nd June.
