This extraordinary films tells us the story of the young Enersto "Che" Guevara,before he became a revolutionary, as he does a road trip with his friend Alberto Granado through out South America, in a crumbling 500cc norton motorcycle. Their journey embodies a spirit of adventure and laddish fun with a fair share of mishaps. The views of South America that we see as we travel with them are breath taking.
Reviewer Nick Cowen of The Daily Telegraph reports the scenery as "visually stunning" while remarking that "the cinematography of fog-cloaked mountains, lush, green forests and sun burnt deserts is breathtakingly beautiful enough to serve as a travel advert for the entire continent."
It won numerous awards including the BAFTA award for best film not in the English language.
