The film tie-in edition of the established modern classic. In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on 'La Poderosa', the Powerful One: a 500cc Norton. One of them was the twenty-three-year-old Che Guevara. Written eight years before the Cuban Revolution, these are Che's diaries -- full of disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy and laddish improvisations. During his travels through Argentina, Chile, Peru and Venezuela, Che's main concerns are where the next drink is coming from, where the next bed is to be found and who might be around to share it. Che becomes a stowaway, a fireman and a football coach; he sometimes falls in love and frequently falls off the motorbike. Within a decade the whole world would know his name. His trip might have been an adventure of a lifetime -- had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure.

I really enjoyed it. heat added!

Sorry AndyWedge, wouldn't touch anything to do with Guevara the cold-nlooded mass murderer and child killer with a bargepole. He was a grade A scumbag. Sadly he seems to be idolised by those who are either ignorant of history or who are far left "the end justiifies the means" fascists themselves.

Fantastic film, I haven't read the book but this is the perfect opportunity.

No, just someone who is neither ignorant nor devoid of a conscience. Guevara was an extremist political fascist and murderer - the sooner humanity learns to loathe all such extremists the better the world will be.
