Julie Gavras is famous politically committed director
Costa-Gavras'daughter and it shows. But be reassured "La faute à
Fidel", her first fiction film (coming after a pair of interesting
documentaries) isn't a carbon copy of a Costa Gavras movie in any way.
It is much more exciting than just that in that it examines thoroughly
the pros and the cons of leftist involvement, mainly its negative
repercussions on family life.
The plot revolves around little nine-year-old Anna( played to
perfection by tense, brooding, occasionally warming to a welcome smile
Nina Kervel), whose life is turned upside down when her parents
abruptly change from well-to-do upper middle class people to leftist
activists, with a feminist inclination concerning the mother. The whole
film will describe the difficulties of a little girl who loses all of
her privileges out of the blue, how she understandably rebels against
such injustice (even rich kids have a cause to defend!) and who very
slowly gets to understand her parents' choices, eventually coming to
terms with the situation and growing mature (more mature than the
standard brat) in the process.
The movie really charmed me from the beginning to the end, ringing true
all the time (the early seventies are well captured, whether when it
comes to the production values or the depiction of the mentalities of
the time). And Julie Gavras knows her subject on the tip of her
fingers. Her parents just like Anna's ones have always been leftist
activists and wasn't her dwelling-place invaded by Chilean "barbudos"
while her dad was preparing "Missing"?
The viewers share her empathy for the central character and appreciate
her refusal to resort to caricature. Of course Anna's grandparents are
"grand bourgeois" but they are not horrible persons. On the other hand,
a leftist activist is not perfect by definition. Those ambiguities give
depth to the characters and make them believable throughout. And Julie
Gavras has a knack for unexpected details enhancing the viewer's
interest and involvement in the story. I was particularly amused by
such features as Anna adoring her catechism class, the presence of a
violently anticommunist Cuban domestic worker (hence the title), the
succession of nannies exiled from different countries torn by
ideological conflicts, Anna singing "Ay, Carmela!" to protest against
her parents quarreling and many others.
All in all, a wonderful initiation movie that augurs well for Julie
Gavras' future career.
