In 1952, twenty-three year old medical student Ernesto Guevara de la Serna (later better known as Ernesto Che Guevara) just one semester away from graduation, decides to postpone his last semester to accompany his twenty-nine year old biochemist friend Alberto Granado on his four month, 8,000 km long dream motorcycle trip throughout South America starting from their home in Buenos Aires. Their quest is to see things they've only read about in books about the continent on which they live, and to finish that quest on Alberto's thirtieth birthday on the other side of the continent in the Guajira Peninsula in Venezuela.

Love him or hate him, this film provides insight into what shaped Che's political views. Loved the scenery and the journey the film took me on.

Wanted to see this movie a LOT, but cannot deal with subtitles - the WHOLE length of the movie. I want to watch the movie, the scenery, the facial expressions and body language, not have to look down to the bottom of the screen and read the whole time! :(

Travel from one end of South America through the countryside and meet the people through the eyes of two youthful adventurers. At times the beauty of the people, even at a leprosy colony of 600 residents, is overwhelming. This is a movie not to miss!

Superb movie about a young man about to graduate from medical school (Ernesto Guevara) before he became Che Guevara.

Teens should see this movie!

"Amores perros" it's another movie in which the main actor plays as well.

A young Ernesto Guevara before he became “Che”. Make sure to watch till the very end.

Not only a fascinating journey to witness, but incredibly eye opening about Che and his roots - informative about his background and why he became the person he is. Plus I love the lead actor here
