Their quest is to see things they've only read about in books about the continent on which they live, and to finish that quest on Alberto's thirtieth birthday on the other side of the continent in the Guajira Peninsula in Venezuela. Not all on this trip goes according to their rough plan due to a broken down motorbike, a continual lack of money (they often stretching the truth to gain the favor of a variety of strangers to help them), arguments between the two in their frequent isolation solely with each other, their raging libidos which sometimes get ...

I would not consider myself to be an ultra liberal, but I am somewhat
knowledgeable about what has been going on in South America for the
last 100 years, and Che Guevara is a part of it. Going into this movie
all I knew about him was that he is on a lot of t-shirts, and that
"che", despite what ignorant people think, is not his name, it is what
Argentinians say to each other like in the US saying "dude".
I am also a big fan of the purity of movies, not this Spider-man crap
that is all over the place, but the true art of films, and I am fairly
serious when I go into a movie for the first time. A part of this is
that I watch the movie throwing all bias I might have out the window
and watch it as if I had never heard of it before. That said, I believe
this movie was excellent because it had superb cinematography of the
beauty of South America, had excellent acting, great chemistry between
the two main actors (despite Ebert saying they did not), and an overall
This movie did not get great reviews in the US, and I haven't seen
reviews from Latin American countries, but I am guessing they are
better. This is because many people either shied away from the movie
once they heard the word Che, and if they did see it, through the whole
movie they were probably thinking "commie, commie!".
I have since read up on Che Guevara, and he is actually a fascinating
person to study because he began as a rich boy who through his journeys
learned how much people were suffering beyond his imagination, and part
of this was how he got to be so rich, by suppressing the native people.
The movie does an excellent job of showing this transition from his
carefree exploring until later having an epiphany about his destiny to
help the people. Yes, he got extreme after a while, but the study of
him is compelling nonetheless.
It is interesting to know that coffee and bananas that say "Guatemala"
are still grown today by slave laborers on farms, and that the US does
not mind the slave labor because they were the ones who sponsored a
coup in 1951 to install a dictatorship that in history books says it
was an ousting of communism, which makes it okay. This is a much bigger
and important example than the movie, but it is the same bias involved:
People in the United States (I don't say America because that refers to
every country from Argentina to Canada, not just the US as people in
this country like to think) not only don't care about the suffering of
people in other countries (unless it's mentioned on Oprah or involves
economic rewards) but have the nerve to call them evil when they try to
better themselves, which at the time was the communist movement in
South America. This is not the communism of Castro or even of the later
Che Guevara, but simply to give more to the starving and suppressed
that are today suppressed to make your bananas and Starbucks coffee.
Because of the biases people have towards the people of countries they
know nothing about, this movie has been extremely underrated in the
wake of films that comparatively suck ("Ray", way overrated) yet have
been rewarded because of their popularity and appeasement to the
ignorant people that attend theaters in the United States.
