    "The Motorcycle Diaries" is based on the journals of Che Guevara, leader of the Cuban Revolution. In his memoirs, Guevara recounts adventures he, and best friend Alberto Granado, had while crossing South America by motorcycle in the early 1950s. The film is understandably episodic in nature, using Guevara's journals and touching letters home to reflect his political awakening. But you don't need to know about - or share - Guevara's revolutionary views to connect with the movie. At its core this is a story about two friends on the adventure of a lifetime, enjoying the ups and downs of the open road. This is a great movie - a must-see.

    Aquarians are all revolutionaries at heart. Motorcycle diaries is about as good of a way as any to learn how one world-changer extraordinaire, Che Guevara, got his start. And watching it is faster than reading Gandhi's 500-page autobiography.

    This film is based on diaries and letters to home written by Ernesto "Che" Guevara during a motorcycle and foot tour of a significant portion of South America during the early 1950s, years before Guevara achieved international renown as a Communist and Latino revolutionary.

    I guess this one is more for the south americans (like me) because of the historical content and motivations of Che Guevara, but it's a great adventure of discovery of America. The other America.
