Storyline

Three innocent citizens are kidnapped by a dubious organization, as they are doppelgangers of three South American dictators. Failing to suppress a revolt in their country, they have wired 300 MM Dollars out of state funds into a bank account in Switzerland, where they intend to vanish into anonymity. The plan is to stage an assassination, in which the doppelgangers get killed - in the dictators' stead. Written by kingkontent.de

Goofs

Kralle identifies a cupboard as: "This is a Hepplewhite. End of 18th century. You can see it at the doors. Well, I would say, 1794. I would say. April. More exactly, 25th April... 3 pm. 3:15. Am I right?" Kralle must be joking: Hepplewhite died in 1786. See more »

Great rumpus with the German 80s band Trio
11 February 2003 | by GkhieslaSee all my reviews

Trio as more or less themselves, 3 Berlin residents, get mixed-up with 3 South-american generals (played by them) who after having betrayed their land by several million dollars/marks are now trying to escape to Switzerland - great!
