When the peasant Ramos Clemente leads a successful revolution in his undefined country, the former dictator General De Cruz advises that his mirror is magic and can anticipate who will murder him. Clement becomes paranoid and kills each one of his revolutionary comrades believing that they want to murder him. Written by
Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Ramos Clemente, a would-be god in dungarees, strangled by an illusion, that will-o'-the-wisp mirage that dangles from the sky in front of the eyes of all ambitious men, all tyrants - and any resemblance to tyrants living or dead is hardly coincidental, whether it be here or in the Twilight Zone.

Hmm I just saw this episode and was surprised by the bad reviews. I don't expect a masterpiece from any episode, but there's always something great about them. I think that in this case Peter Falk is the reason, his acting is so raw that you can feel the farce of the story, what's important is the energy in his acting. Also watch him act in Cassavetes, it's his best.
What else... well i like it. I just need to fill the lines a bit. The other actors are good too. And nothing more really. Just hanging in. Got to go. Bye. What do they mean with 10 lines of text. Come on. Please.
