When Che Guevara was a young man, he took a motorcycle trip around South America in the 1950s with his best friend, Alberto Granado, and recorded the experiences in his memoirs. "The Motorcycle Diaries," starring Gael Garcia Bernal, is director Walter Salles's entrancing account of that long ago event. See review on Page 33.

photography and more. Call
