Motorcycle Diaries Review

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.
