Overview

Che

Nearly 40 years after Che Guevara's execution in Bolivia, director Steven Soderbergh retraces the life of the iconic Cuban revolutionary in this nearly four-and-a-half-hour saga. Part 1 begins on November 26, 1956, as Fidel Castro (Demián Bichir) sails into Cuban waters with 80 rebels in tow. Among those rebels is Argentine doctor Ernesto "Che" Guevara (Benicio Del Toro), a man who shares Castro's dream of overthrowing corrupt dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the struggle gets under way, Guevara proves an indispensable part of the revolution due to his firm grasp on the concepts of guerilla warfare. Guevara is heartily embraced by both his comrades and the Cuban people, and quickly rises through the ranks to become first a commander, and ultimately a revolutionary hero. Part 2 of the saga begins with Guevara at the absolute peak of his fame and power. Disappearing suddenly, Guevara subsequently resurfaces in Bolivia to organize a modest group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits in preparation for the Latin American Revolution. But while the Bolivian campaign would ultimately fail, the tenacity, sacrifice, and idealism displayed by Guevara during this period would make him a symbol of heroism to followers around the world. Part 1 and Part 2 were screened together as Che at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, and also received a limited theatrical release under that same title in U.S. theaters later that same year.

The film showcases a successful revolution and a failed one in Bolivia

If you have not read Jon Lee Anderson's biography of the Argentine doctor you may want to do so before viewing this biopic. One with little knowledge of the path Ernesto Guevara's life took after the "Motorcycle Diaries" may find this film hard to follow. With that said, this is a must see film. Steven Soderbergh and Benecio Del Toro team up to bring Che to life on the big screen. Benecio Del Toro accepted the well deserved Best Actor award for his role as Che at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. Finally, the film comes out on DVD and Blu-ray!
