A Tale of Two (Button) Movies….

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to a movie called The War of the Buttons.  It’s about pre-WWII Irish boys who cut buttons off their rivals’ clothing.  I looked it up on Amazon because I’d never heard of it and it looks pretty cool!

Then I saw there is another movie of the same title, but this one is newer and in French:

I’m always amazed at how pervasive buttons are as symbols and motifs in art….and I’m anxious to watch these two movies and do a revew here soon!

In the meantime, feel free to share if you’ve seen them!
