“The Motorcycle Diaries” review

This film feels like it was made with love. It’s the story of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara (Played by the charismatic Gael García Bernal) as he travels South America on a motorcycle (and on foot).

Some films make you interested in their characters more than other films. This is certainly a film that made me very interested in the life of Ernesto and interested in him as a person.

The film drags sometimes, but carry on through those rare times and you’ve got quite a good film. Don’t think you’re just getting a road movie either because in the latter part of the film you get a solid amount of time spent in one spot which is really the best part of the film I’d say. Walter Salles has made a touching, absolutely beautifully shot film with incredible locations and all that is complimented by a superb soundtrack which includes another great score from Gustavo Santaolalla.

I think this is a film that a lot of people could enjoy, so I’m recommending it. Plus it might get you interested in this man like it’s got me interested.

Actually now I’m planning on renting part 1 or Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” starring Benicia Del Toro, so hopefully you’ll see a review of that this week.
