La Faute à Fidel

(France/Italy, 2006, 101 minutes)

In 1970 Paris, a seven-year old has a hard time adjusting when her bourgeois parents, swept up by the revolutionary Latin American democracy movements, become social and political activists and her lifestyle changes abruptly. Lively and sensitive family comedy-drama which would make a fine coming-of-age piece if the lead character wasn’t too young for that definition; despite the background, it is not a political film.
