The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)
Before he was a revolutionary icon, Che Guevara – played here by Gael Garcia Bernal – was just a newly-qualified doctor with a motorbike and a hankering for the open road. His trusty Norton 500 motorcycle, christened La Poderosa (The Mighty One) lived up to its name – getting Che and his pal most of the way, until its breakdown slowed their schedule somewhat. But better late than never. After the film's release tour operators were inundated with travellers heading to Latin America.
