By the first time, Simon Bolivars story is been told from the perspective about the man, not the heroe but the human been itself; with his weakness and troubles that led him to think even in death. Based on one of the most dramatic years at Libertadors life, between May 1815 and May 1816, can be seen the man without the uniform, the man who suffered a rough exile on Jamaica, in the midst the loneliness and the penury from a young man who though he have failed.

This movie was such a disappointment to me! I went to watch the movie because i am a great admirer of the life and achievement of Simon Bolivar, the Liberator. I had great expectations because i thought that with such an interesting personality they could make a really good movie. But the truth is that i did not appreciate the work they did here. Unfortunately the movie is boring, slow and really disappointing. Performances are not quite good and the main character is not a really good actor (although physically he nay resemble Bolivar) and overall the hole plot is weak and unsubstantial. So i can only say: Don't waste your time!
