Storyline

Santiago Miranda¸ an actor representing Bolivar in a television series¸ leaves furious recording because it disagrees with the scripts they oblige die Bolívar¸ against the wall. Between the lucidity and the madness¸ Miranda really acts as a Bolívar prepared to perform any act that allows to conclude the unifying of the Liberator task and as an actor which seeks to rewrite reality to make it look to the dreams of Simón Bolívar.

succeeds on its own terms
8 August 2002 | by John-442See all my reviews

Anyone with some interest in Colombia (or the region) would probably find this film worthwhile. Though comical, it does have serious undertones, but it is not political in a partisan sense. The perilous title role is handled deftly by Robinson Diaz and Amparo Grisales is lovely in a supporting role. I think the movie succeeds on its own terms. The filmmakers seem to have been seeking a certain tone, not so easy to do in this case, but I would say they got it right.
