Funny criticism to politicians anywhere!
19 July 2005 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about 12 yo, but remember it as one of the fine comedies made in Mexico. Palmiro (Luis Sandrini)is the valet of the ambassador of a non-existent country, who is attending an event in Mexico City where other country's ambassadors are attending to, sort of UN, I think. As the story goes, Palmiro shows he is a bit clumsy, but good natured fellow. The ambassador (Roberto Soto) and he go to a restaurant in Mexico, and Palmiro pours hot sauce on the ambassador's dish, none of them familiar with it and its effects. The ambassador gets sick because of this and sends his speech to be read by the secretary at the podium; somehow Palmiro's identity gets mistaken, and is taken to be the ambassador. I think this happens because this is such a small country, that nobody knows anyone from it. As Palmiro starts delivering the speech, all the meaningless and metaphoric words written in it, make Palmiro to stop, and asks the audience: Is this a forum for agriculture or a poetry convention? He then delivers his own personal opinion, that in the end, is widely acclaimed by all the other ambassador, while, the real ambassador, still staying at the hospital from the hot sauce's effects, bits his lip from hearing Palmiro. The whole situation is quite hilarious. In the end, Palmiro gets married and stays in Mexico as the official Ambassador. I'm sorry this picture is no longer available anywhere, I'd sure recommend it as one of the better comedies in its time
