Movie Byte ... Diarios de motocicleta

This film tells the story of the youthful Ernesto Guevara de la Serna and Alberto Granado, and their "road trip" around their beloved continent Latin America. And as he explains it "What we had in common - our restlessness, our impassioned spirits, and a love for the open road.”

What started as a touristic tour for two young men who wanted to "make love with girls from every country" had evolved into a bitter discovery of the starving workers and the politically oppressed they encountered in Chile, Peru and Venezuela. The misery they encountered and the pain they saw changed them forever.

What I love about this movie is that it's very passionate, it makes you understand what the circumstances were at that time and how it changed this young rich medicine student into the "Commendante Che Guevara" we know today. Technically it was astonishing; breath-taking views of various locations in Latin America along with beautiful music and marvelous acting made this picture worth watching.

My Rating: 8.0 / 10
