Critic Reviews for Clandestine Childhood

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

Ávila can't quite thread the needle between telling his personal story and connecting it to larger social currents.

Full Review… | February 8, 2013
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

'Clandestine Childhood'' is the impressive first feature by Argentine director Benjamín Avila.

Full Review… | January 11, 2013
New York Post
Top Critic

When a filmmaker proves as reluctant as Mr. Ávila to speak up about the past, to engage with its full complexity, it can be hard to hear what he's saying.

New York Times
Top Critic

The calmer scenes are staged in staid and somewhat clunky fashion, but the graphic animation depicting the worst moments is starkly effective.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

Outré flourishes don't fully lift the story past the limitations of innocence-lost storytelling.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

A charming, involving first feature, Clandestine Childhood muscles its familiar coming-of-age material into something more vibrant and urgent than the usual.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A solemn reverie about an urban guerrilla mother in revolutionary struggle, and the maternal ideal as ambivalent myth and martyr. Giving rise to the contemplation of art as an act of necessity, and the creative journey of the life of an idea in a film.

WBAI Radio

Benjamín Ávila structures the film as a series of precious moments, remembrances of a difficult year when the politics of patria and family got in the way of his puppy love.
