"The Hedgehogs' War" is good known for a few generations of Bulgarian kids. Actually this is one of the most famous Bulgarian movies for children and their grown parents of all time. The battle of the kids with the people from their block to win the right to play a basketball in the backyard becomes a war of the generations, you will laugh with they plans how to get a basket from the school, how to stay in the local basketball team and becomes a future champions, with the first excitements of love, honor and friendship, everything with the background of the famous song, performed by Asen Kisimov, "Where Are My Children's books, Tell Me, My Dusty Box..":-) I personally give the film 10 out of 10, like every other grown with that movie Bulgarian kid will do!
