Blame it on Fidel

Blame It on Fidel ★★½ La Faute a Fidel 2006

Amusing and tender film told from the point of view of nine-year-old Anna (Kervel), who becomes increasingly upset when her bourgeois parents, Fernando (Accorsi) and Marie (Depardieu, daughter of Gerard), suddenly decide to devote their time and money to various political/activist causes (it's 1970 in Paris). She and her younger brother are moved from their comfortable home to a shabby apartment and are left in the care of oddball political refugees. Anna doesn't take well to all these changes and is confused about what she hears and is told to believe. Writer/director Gavras is the daughter of political filmmaker Costas-Gavras. French with subtitles. 100m/C DVD . FR IT Julie Depardieu, Stefano Accorsi, Olivier Perrier, Nina Kremer, Benjamin Feuillet, Martine Chevallier, Marie Kremer, Marie-Noelle Bordeaux; D: Julie Gavras; W: Julie Gavras; C: Nathalie Durant; M: Armand Amar.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
