Delightful watch + Great Music

I enjoyed this one. It's a period road movie in Spanish with English subtitles and tells a tale of Che (a medical student) and a pal (a medical pharmacist) who venture by motorbike from their home in Buenos Aries westwards to Chile (over the Andes) and then North to Venezuela. Wonderful scenery, and a nice tale of friendship between the two, plus it shows how Che became politicised through his interactions with South American poor. The music is great too, especially the guitar music on the menu

Che Guevara...we see his face like Christ on many tee-shirts but who was he really? Well, this movie covers his formative years as a medical student when he and his best friend take an old bike and trek thousands of miles around the one land that is South America. It's an enthralling road trip which brings these two well-off people in contact with all the poverty and corruption of the then South American Continent. Funny and touching, this is not to be missed.

Really enjoyed this Loved the characters but may be slightly prejudiced as relation to Che thro my Dad and his mother so quess I cannot really give an balanced review .....having heard loads of the stories whilst growing up and che has always been a family hero and personal favourite...and an ideal to live up to...Would recommend it just for the characters alone.............

We see Che Guevara as a young man who sets out on a journey of exploration through South America with his best friend. There are some wonderful scenes in this movie. Highly recommend viewing.

This film tells the story of two frinds who take time out to travel around south american. Often funny, excellently portrayed by the two actors this story is lovely. It has subtitles .
