An interesting film but one that will truly be enjoyed
24 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though the plot was often hard to follow the movie was funny and enjoyable to watch. Following Santiago through his "self-discovery" as Simón Bolívar is both saddening and uplifting as the plot unfolds. The fact that the Bolivar soy yo is filmed from the perspective of a movie about a soap opera adds an interesting twist. The plot often borders on ridiculousness and any important theme that may have been intended is lost in the shadows of the storyline. One leaves the movie having completely enjoyed themselves but feeling slightly confused as to what actually happened. I would recommend this movie to anyone, even if they did not speak Spanish.
