Motorcycle Daries

Just like most of teenagers in my age, I never knew who Che Guevara is. I knew nothing about his life. His face is ubiquitous thanks mostly to the T-shirts made in Third World sweatshops by multinational corporations – the very embodiment of evil Che Guevara tried to fight. There are, however, better ways to pay homage to this great and controversial historical icon, and one of them is THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, 2004 biographical drama directed by Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles.
  The film deals with the event that preceded Che's revolutionary career. It starts in 1952 Buenos Aires where Ernesto "Fuser" Guevara (played by Gael Garcia Bernal), when he was a only normal 23-year old medical students a semester short of graduation decides to spend few months travelling across South America with his best friend, 29-year old biochemist Alberto Granado (played by Rodrigo De la Serna). They start with an old motorcycle they would have to ditch and continue on foot. Their path leads them through Argentina, Chile and, ultimately Peru. This is the ending of an old life, and also a start of a legend. Just like what in his daries said “Wandering around our America has changed me more than I thought. I am not me any more. At least I'm not the same me I was.”
  Along the way they experience all kinds of adventures, we see the imperfect side of young Guevara, fooling local girls with their made up stories and getting into trouble at the expense of their overactive, but continually starved, sex drive diminishes into a darker world of social injustice and inequality that resonates profoundly. But then these are all the elements make him success. He is becoming less thrilled with the adventure and more affected with the poverty, injustice and oppression he had witnessed in various countries. Two of them finally come to volunteer as physicians in leper colony where Guevara's idealism and political ideas start to take shape and became “the most perfect person in our time”.
