Motorcycle Diaries

Ernesto Guevara's The Motorcycle Diaries ( Diarios de Motocicleta ) is not the travel journal of the man who would become one of Time Magazine's "icons of the century." Rewritten by Guevara several years after the journey took place, the Motorcycle Diaries movie is a memoir. The entries from his travel diary depicting the events and people encountered on the trip, combined with his ruminations on their later significance, provide a rare opportunity to witness the retracing of a remarkable man's destiny and the solidifying of his identity from its earlier state.
