About the Movie

Based on a true life story, The Motorcycle Diaries is an inspiring and thrilling adventure that traces the youthful origins of a revolutionary spirit. The film follows two daring friends, Ernesto "Che" Guevara (Gael García Bernal,, Y Tu Mama Tambien) and Alberto Granado (Rodrigo de la Serna), who hop on the back of a beat-up motorcycle for a breathtaking and exciting road trip across Latin America. From executive producer Robert Redford and acclaimed director Walter Salles (Central Station) comes a life-changing journey that critics are hailing as "Magnificent!" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone)

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Whether you want to see The Motorcycle Diaries as entirely a personal story or as social and political allegory, it captures a far different and far more vulnerable Ernesto Guevara than the one we think we know. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Revisits Guevara's 8,000-mile tour of South America -- and the origins of his personal revolution -- with humor, exquisite compassion and visual grace. – Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If I was moved despite my ingrained skepticism about Che Guevara and Castro's Cuba, you probably will be too. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Apr 26, 2007

Rotten: A dull, unsatisfying experience -- as well as inconclusive. – Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, Jun 24, 2010

Great movie!

This movie is one of my favorites.

good movie

It was a good movie but the error was in trying to make Che look like a saint when he was just a man. The friend was given the role as the womanizer when t it was really Che who was the womanizer. I wish that had been more accurate. That truth would not have diminish the things that he tried to do in uniting Latin America. The fact is that dispite growing up in great wealth and comfort, his heart and deeds were with the poor.

Leftist Propaganda.

"Che Guevara was a real nice guy." That's the basic message of this film. If it wasn't such a bore I might have enjoyed it, but this movie has an agenda to change minds on a person who truly may have been a nice guy, but in this film he's the messiah. This is probably the sort of film that the left thinks is good due to the message alone; forget the lousy story. The acting was good, though.
