The Motorcycle Diaries review, which
world-premiered to a standing ovation at the 2004 Sundance Film
Festival, follows an inspiring journey of self-discovery and
traces the youthful origins of a revolutionary heart. In the
Motorcycle Diaries movie review, the rich and complex
human and social topography of the Latin American continent
is unveiled in all its glory as two friends experience life
at its fullest. The Motorcycle Diaries review, directed by Walter
Salles (Central Station, Behind the Sun), is adapted by José
Rivera from the journals of two real-life young Argentines,
Alberto Granado and Ernesto Guevara de la Serna - the latter
of whom would become "El Che."

In the Motorcycle Diaries review, Robert Redford comments,
"The Motorcycle Diaries seemed like the perfect way to
collaborate with Walter, especially since Che Guevara can be
such a tricky subject. I knew Walter would handle the story
with lyricism and humanity rather than focusing on the politics
of who Ernesto would later become." As you can tell in
the Motorcycle Diaries movie review, the director of the movie
was already quite familiar with the book when the producers
approached him to helm the film. In the Motorcycle Diaries review,
to balance the film's portrayal of the two main characters,
Rivera drew from both Guevara's travel diary and Granado's own
account of the trip.
The Motorcycle Diaries award nominees
have reached an outstanding number. With the Motorcycle Diaries
award nominees being in such categories as "Best Picture"
in the British Academy Awards, "Best Foreign Language Film"
in the Golden Globes, and "Best Foreign Film" by the
National Board of Review, it is no wonder why the film is a
fascination among many. The director, the composer for the soundtrack,
as well as a few actors were up for Motorcycle Diaries award
nominees as well.
