This film portrays the life of a 23 year old Ernesto Guevara de La Serna looking for adventures and inspiration. He was a young man at this point, far from becoming the infamous warrior the world came to know as Che Guevara. I love this film, in fact it is one of my favorites. I am appalled to learn about his actions in Cuba and his decision to stop practising medicine. I admire his desire for a more just world but I despise what he became. Nonetheless, the point of this film is to depict his journey through South America, not how he became Che Guevara in the end.
