Can the Mexican police avoid the assassination of the President of the United States? - The 72 hours in the life of Filiberto Garcia that can change the outcome of the Cold War - Damn International Intrigue!.
In the height of the Cold War, and we are in Mexico City. Filiberto Garcia is a sixty year old Mexican policeman. Over the course of his life he has killed people: men, women, a priest. But what he once did to help his country transform itself into something better, he now does strictly as a job. By the 1960s, the Mexican politicians have long since betrayed the Revolution. Cold, duplicitous figures who occupy offices in their suits now pull the strings. They of course kill also, but they never do the dirty work themselves. They need others to do it for them, and that's where Garcia, comes in. Damn International intrigue.Written by
In the bar scene, the gray haired gentleman sitting at a booth reading a newspaper is Rafael Bernal, the son of the novel's author (of the same name). See more »
At the end of credits, there is a still shot of a newspaper with the headline reading (in Spanish) "General Miraflores saves the President". See more »
Poorly made. Very dumb. Waste of time. The plot makes no sense. It attempts to be a comedy but is crude and violent. I am glad that I did not understand what the conspiracy was so that I do not spoil the movie for others.
