The motorcycles diaries is the film of Ernesto Che Guevara’s travels through South America. The story moves from it humerous and engaging beginning to its poigniant and moving finale. The film is wonderfully acted, beautifully scored and delicatly directed; it’s filmed against astounding geography and a historical background more stunning still.

I’ve spent too long recently re-reading, re-watching. Who could wish for better than the Motorcycle Diaries to break this habit.
