Eh. It was good. Funny, insightful look into the growth of two young men, well shot. But the fact that it was "Che" meant the director tried too hard to make it meaningful - the black and white shots of people, the ending. It didn't need that to be a good movie. Still, worth seeing in spite of the fact that its about Che, not because of it.

I like Che. He was a freedom fighter. Nothing wrong with the little guy defending himself against the bullies.

In Montréal it was shown in the original Spanish with French subtitles and with English subtitles, and also in a dubbed French version. I imagine that there is also a dubbed English version, but I'd strongly advocated seeing the subtitled original. There is a lot of play with different varieties of Spanish - according to a Chilean friend who saw it, the Mexican actor who plays Ernesto speaks perfect Argentinean. Even between Argentina and Chile there are differences in pronunciation and vocabulary and the film plays with them. There are also indigenous people speaking their own languages in the film.

I wouldn't mind seeing the subtitled version, but my wife finds it goes by too quickly for her (her eyesight is not as good as mine). She refuses to see subtitled movies in the theatre. I don't know Spanish, so that aspect of the film would probably be lost on both of us.
