Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. I always tried to follow Walter Salles' work but, honestly, he never really managed to became a great director. I mean, he made some pretty good movies but he never became one of the greatest and it is pretty much the same thing concerning Gael Garcia Bernal. Ever since I saw this young actor more than 10 years ago in 'Amores Perros', I thought he was very talented and might become one of the most interesting actors of his generation but it honestly never really happened. Anyway, those two guys got here together to tell this tale about Che Guevarra. The most interesting thing about this historical figure is that there is absolutely no middle ground concerning him. I mean, he is considered either a role model, a legendary revolutionary figure fighting for the poor and the underprivileged or a blood thirsty dictator, a torturer who killed many innocent people. I always find this intriguing. Anyway, here, they chose a different approach and decided to tell the story of the young Guevarra way before the Cuban revolution. Personally, I really enjoyed this flick. Indeed, the directing was smooth and Bernal gave, as usual, a very good performance and it was just a rather fascinating story. After watching this flick, it seems hard to believe he became a heartfless killer but it is just a movie after all, not a history class. To conclude, I thought it was really good and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
