Movie Tip #9 - The Motorcycle Diaries

Director: Walter Salles

Starring: Gael García Bernal, Rodrigo De la Serna

Description: "The Motorcycle Diaries" is an adaptation of a journal written by Ernesto "Che" Guevara de la Serna when he was 23 years old. He and his friend, Alberto Granado are typical college students who, seeking fun and adventure before graduation, decide to travel across Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela in order to do their medical residency at a leper colony.

Review: Che Guevara was a very important man, who did a lot for the people. Even before he became a great leader, he did amazing things to help mankind. It's an inspiring story. You can see how this journey changed Ernesto and which in turn led him to try to change the world. So the tagline of the movie is perfect: 'Before he changed the world, the world changed him'. The acting in this film is first-class: Gael Garcia Bernal performs at his best; however it is Rodrigo de la Serna's performance the one that is simply outstanding; not only he represents Granado's as a funny, outgoing character, but he also highlights Gael's characterization of Guevara. This is a great movie, just watch it!
