Che: Part One

Directed by Steven Soderbergh
France, 2008
Biography, Drama, History


Daring in its refusal to make the socialist leader into an easy martyr or hero, Che paints a vivid, naturalistic portrait of the man himself (with a stunning performance by Benicio del Toro), from his overthrow of the Batista dictatorship to his 1964 trip to the end of his short life.
