The story of a man who fooled an entire country. A tale of cheats and impostors, taking its inspiration from true facts and from one of the most intriguing characters of recent decades: the spy Francisco Paesa.

Real life stories are not everyones cup of tea. Then again, when it comes to something like that you have to be a far greater cynic than I am, not to want to watch it.

So you could call this inspirational, no matter the outcome, because not the finish line is what is worth all the trouble, but the way leading up to it. No matter if it is the whole thing, or just parts of it. Just the fact you pursue it, should be satisfaction in itself. So if that sounds like something you can get behind with, than the movie is worth watching too ...
