A personal portrait of a political phenomenon and a view of the developments since the revolution a mere ten years before, Fidel! gives a rare glimpse into everyday life of the Cuban people and its leader. Whether listening to a complaints at a collective farm, playing baseball with the locals, or discussing Marxist revolution, Castro's charisma is present in every frame and, like him or not, lends understanding to why so many call him "The Giant."
"The great quality of this remarkable film is that it is educational in the best possible sense. It gives you a feeling for what revolution - any revolution - is actually about... I found it completely absorbing from the start to finish. A tapestry for history." - Ralph Gleason, Rolling Stone
