Carlos Quintas, the democratically-elected president of an unnamed South American country, has been deposed by a military coup. He is in London, the head of a government in exile, rallying international support. He is also a poet of talent and reputation, in love with Kate, his assistant, who has a secret of her own and keeps Carlos at a distance. The generals have a team of professionals in London bent on kidnap and assassination. Hovering around Carlos are two Russians, who may be KGB, an American book publisher, who may be CIA, an elusive Brit, probably from her majesty's secret service, and his own few supporters. Is Carlos doomed? Whom can he trust?Written by
A South American president defeated by military Junta
It is difficult to accept that UK authorities and police will allow foreigners or terrorists to do what we can see in the film, i.e. a Latin American president escaping from a coup d'etat and being kidnaped in London by secret police of his country. It is non sense either to see the president moving free everywhere in London or in UK. The idea of the plot was perhaps to denounce as many coups d'etat Latin America has suffered and related problems of democracy there, but the arguments are too weak for the film to be qualified, at least, as an acceptable one.
