Critic Reviews for Clandestine Childhood
Ávila can't quite thread the needle between telling his personal story and connecting it to larger social currents.
'Clandestine Childhood'' is the impressive first feature by Argentine director Benjamín Avila.
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.
The calmer scenes are staged in staid and somewhat clunky fashion, but the graphic animation depicting the worst moments is starkly effective.
Outré flourishes don't fully lift the story past the limitations of innocence-lost storytelling.
