THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES (Theatrical Release Argentina 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Motorcycle Diaries
—authenticity marks this film—has a series of terrific scenes, presented one after another that defines the early 1950 South American decade. It’s merit lies in scenes like those of involving natives of Cuzco, Peru with dialogue that stems from very difficult life situations. The film runs about 126 minutes.
