  • Critic Reviews
    "Julie Gavras's wonderful film, BLAME IT ON FIDEL, is a deeply political movie that sidesteps strident polemics by viewing the ideological conflicts within a French-Spanish family through the eyes of a smart, willful child."
    New York Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Cleaving to a child's-eye-view of a time of significant social change, documentarist-turned-feature director Julie Gavras elicits excellence from Kervel..."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Kervel retains an amusing gravitas. Perfectly capturing the era's flawed idealism, this is a little gem."

    "Gavras' most notable achievement is her impeccable casting, in particular Nina Kervel....[Her] acting miraculously sidesteps cuteness as she tries to rationalise the baffling changes taking place around her."
    Sight and Sound

    "A remarkably assured and elegant debut, BLAME IT ON FIDEL is the kind of smart, sophisticated and fiercely humanistic film that all movies should aspire to be..."
    Los Angeles Times
