Sobre o filme
Part 1: The Argentine
On November 26, 1956, Fidel Castro sails to Cuba with eighty rebels. One of those rebels is Ernesto “Che” Guevara, an Argentine doctor who shares a common goal with Fidel Castro - to overthrow the corrupt dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Che proves indispensable as a fighter, and quickly grasps the art of guerrilla warfare. As he throws himself into the struggle, Che is embraced by his comrades and the Cuban people. The film tracks Che’ rise in the Cuban Revolution, from doctor to commander to revolutionary hero.
Part 2: Guerrilla
Che is at the height of his fame and power after the Cuban Revolution, as he delivers a rousing speech at the United Nations, reaffirming his commitment to the Third World struggle against US imperialism. Che then disappears, re-emerging incognito in Bolivia, where he organizes a small group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits to start the great Latin American Revolution. The story of the Bolivian campaign is a tale of tenacity, sacrifice, idealism, and of guerrilla warfare that ultimately fails, bringing Che to his death. For his part as Che Guevara, Benicio Del Toro was awarded best actor at Cannes 2008.
