Blame It on Fidel back to product details

A real gem.

One of 07's better and more overlooked films still holds up for me. The lead performance by the young actress is superb and the rest of the cast is uniformly excellent as well, but it's Julie Gavras sensitive direction and storytelling, from a child's POV, that really makes this a near-classic. Never gets too didactic or critical, it just is what it is -- the parents behave selfishly at times, but as they admit, they make mistakes, everyone does. The film beautifully captures the energy and upheaval of the early 70s on a grander scale and on a smaller scale the angst of coming into one's own. Empathetic, often even quite funny, and never less than fully human, Blame It on Fidel is a delight.
