Blame It On Fidel!

| DVDRip-H.264 | 2006 |

A 9-year-old girl, Anna de la Mesa (played by Nina Kervel), weathers big changes in her household as her parents become radical political activists in 1970-71 Paris. Her Spanish-born lawyer father Fernando (played by Stefano Accorsi) is inspired by his family's opposition to Franco and Salvador Allende's victory in Chile; he quits his job and becomes a liaison for Chilean activists in France. Her mother, a Marie Claire journalist-turned-writer documenting the stories of women's abortion ordeals, supports her husband and climbs aboard the ideological bandwagon. As a result, Anna's French bourgeois life is over. She must adjust to refugee nannies, international cuisine and a cramped apartment full of noisy revolutionaries.

The film is filled with a dizzying array of philosophy and ideology - everything from Communism to Catholicism to Greek and Asian mythology - which Anna must reconstruct from confusion to her own set of beliefs. As she negotiates her way through this ideological maze until ultimate internalisation of her parents' admirable (albeit ad-hoc administered) objectives, we are exposed to a witty analysis of stereotyping, misinformation, the potential hypocrisies of ideologies and the potential false hopes of idealism.
