The Motorcycle Diaries is an irresistible film based on Che Guevaras own diaries of his early years in the 50s. We follow two friends as they set out on a journey across South America, covering over 8000 kilometres in only four months.
At first, Alberto and Ernesto only want to be tourists of South America, exploring and having fun. But their perceptions change dramatically after journeying through the slums, seeing the poverty of the people, and witnessing the problems of the class system in the cities.
Their friendship is tested and we see the political future of a nation born in various subtle moments. A nice added touch is that the closing credits are overlaid with original photos from the real journey of Alberto and Ernesto.
