The life of Che Guevara is seemingly examined by modern cinematographers through rose colored glasses. LGW
-Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter (Germany)">HE was a brutal enforcer for Castro and was responsible for large numbers of political assassinations and outright murders at the Isle of Pines prison as well as throughout Cuba.
His star fell after his failure in the Congo and when he died in South America he was in the middle of another failure, while in exile from Cuba at Castro's direction. His rehabilitation came about with Castro simply because it suited the regimes political propaganda machine to hail Guevara as a martyr of the revoloution. The return of his body to Cuba was a political maneuver to bolster the civilian view of Castro taken with the purpose of distracting people from the fact that they live in a totalitorian state with secret police watching their every move.
No matter how beautiful the cinematography is, or how excellent the performances of the actors turn out to be.... making this movie is like making a movie glamorizing the life of a young Stalin or Hitler. It is one thing to seek understanding, but to turn a monster responsible for thousands of deaths and the installation of a dictator into a symbol for youthful ideal and zeal without balance is wrong.
