Synopsis:
Based on the journals of the man who would later become the revolutionary Che Guevara, The Motorcycle Diaries follows the story of two young Argentines, Ernesto Guevara and Alberto Granado on a road trip to discover real Latin America. The two friends leave their familiar surrounding in Buenos Aires on a rickety 1939 Norton 500. Although the bike breaks down in a course of their eight month journey, they press onward, hitching rides along the way. They begin to see a different Latin America in the people they meet on the road, and the diverse geography they encounter begins to reflect their own shifting perspectives.
This is a start of a journey of self-discovery, tracing the origins of a revolutionary heart.

Motorcycle Diaries - The Motorcycle Diaries review by Cherry

Not knowing a lot about Che guevara, it seemed odd to me to imagine him as a young man, but the film did really evoke the characters and a certain time and place in history. I just want them to make a sequel now of the next bit of his life!

Before I saw this film I knew nothing about Che before he went to Cuba or the lives of the poor in Latin America- along with a great cast and amazing scenery this is a film you will want to see again and again
