"Before he changed the world the world changed him"
[Movie Review] Motorcycle Diaries (Diarios de motocicleta) (2004).
Philanthropy, adrenaline, passion, love, and breathtaking views. It's a story of what you are not. It's a story of what you don't know you miss, because you never dared to experience it.
It is as authentic as the air you breathe, the leaf you don't crush, the tears you hide. Two friends who take on a trip for fun and adventure. And an year later, they find home in realizing the pretense they had been living all along. They meet hostile boundaries but loving people. They see pain. They live suffering. They fall in love, then come out of it, and then fall again only this time it's with what they really love - compassion, truth, genuine human to human respect.
They dare. They learn. And in just one year, their soul shakes off the prejudices. They are human again.
A must watch. I give it 4.85/5.0!
