Director: Walter Salles Cast: Gael García Bernal, Rodrigo De la Serna Country: Argentina Language: Spanish, Quechua, Mapudungun Based on the journals of Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Young Ernesto decides to postpone his last semester of medical school and accompany his best friend Alberto on an adventure of a lifetime - four month motorcycle journey through the whole of South America. What starts as curioty driven hedonistic trip leads both men to discover America they knew only from books, but also transforms them. South to North they are met with kindness and everyday laughs, but also poverty and exploitation. Featuring breath-taking lanscapes and touching soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla is a position not to be missed.
