Lobo is the amazing story of Mikel Lejarza, a builder turned secret agent who, in the early 1970s, managed to infiltrate the Basque terrorist organisation ETA, resulting in the most successful anti - terror operation ever launched by the Spanish authorities. Adopting the undercover name Lobo Mikel (portrayed by Noriega as the character Txema in the film) quickly and very successfully becomes an active member of the organisation and, in doing so, gains the trust of its leading figures. But as the bloodshed mounts and the political climate slowly begins to change, Lobo soon finds himself out of his depth and is ultimately forced into a life or death struggle in order to escape from both sides of the law.
Interesting film based on true events. Noriega is great as the ordinary guy who becomes 'the wolf' a government agent used to infiltrate the terrorist organisation ETA. He is forced to tread a fine line between the demands of the government he is supposed to be working for and the organisation that he is trusted by.
