Directed by Walter Salles
Gael Garcia Bernal is fantastic as a young Che Guevera traveleing across South America with his friend Alberto Granado. The film follows them all across the continent, leading to a leper colony where the help out as doctors, which certainly gives some insight into Guevera's transformation into a revolutionary later. The direction and cinematography is fantastic, with Salles and his cinematographer Eric Gautier capturing the natural beauty of the South American landscape in every shot.
