To amuse themselves during the winter school break, the kids in a small village decide to have a massive snowball fight. Luke and Sophie, both 11 years old, become the leaders of the opposing sides. Sophie and her cohort defend an elaborate snow fort against the assault of Luke’s horde. Whichever side occupies the fort at the end of the winter break, wins. But what starts out as pure youthful fun and enthusiasm deteriorates into a more serious conflict. Joy is restored when all the children decide to attack the fort rather than each other and happily destroy every last bit of the snow fort.

    Enjoyable! It explains the topic of war in a very good way.

    The movie has cute characters with a lot of lovely moments and sad moments too.

    It is a good film to watch during winter

    De kinderen van een godvergeten Canadees dorpje houden in twee teams een sneeuwgevecht, waarbij ze een sneeuwkasteel moeten veroveren. Maar vriendschappen en een verliefdheid doorkruisen de competitiegeest. Heel mooie film!

    A well done kids movie.

  • ★★★½ review by iris ^^ on Letterboxd

    What an adorable movie to watch before a long day of college & work. I'm a fan of animation movies, so I'll be bias, but I'd recommend this movie not only to kids but everyone.

    For the most part, Snowtime! is an innocent wintertime film aimed at kids. However, the laughs turn to tears towards the end and as such the film is not really recommended for very young kids, unless of course they see the film with a comforting parent.
