Motorcycle Diaries

Based on Che Guevara's journal of his travels through South america on an ancient Norton 500 with a fellow student. Walter Salles' film is much more than a road movie. The Andes and Amazon landscapes are spectacular, but the real journey is Guevara's transformation from callow medical student to committed revolutionary.
