Just stumbled on the French title for the movie The Dog Who Stopped the War. It’s La Guerre des Tuques (Touques?) and in my best broken French (English) – the war of the touques (or toques or winter wool-knit caps).

Stop me if you know the story: Kids in Quebec, 1980s, all decked out in Quebec Nordiques jerseys, hockey sticks, and toques (touques?) have a series of giant snow battles until tragically, one kid’s dog gets killed when a giant snowfort (not unlike stuff from the Quebec Winter Carnival) collapses. That ends the war.

I’d like to see it again. I’m sure it’s playing on Bravo right now.
