The Motorcycle Diaries

We watched a really good film called The Motorcycle Diaries tonight. It’s a true story about a 23 year old medical student from Argentina who motorcycled across South America with a buddy back in the early 1950’s. This is a subtitled movie from a no-name studio and I got it because I thought it would be a cool road trip story, but it turned out to be more than that. What made the movie great was the cultures and people that these two guys ran into and how they were affected. This movie is far more about relationships and compassion than it is about adventure. I highly recommend it.
