Product Description

On November 26, 1956, Fidel Castro sails to Cuba with eighty rebels. One of those rebels is Ernesto "Che" Guevara (Benicio Del Toro), an Argentine doctor who shares a common goal with Fidel Castro—to overthrow the corrupt dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Che proves indispensable as a fighter, and quickly grasps the art of guerrilla warfare. As he throws himself into the struggle, Che is embraced by his comrades and the Cuban people. Che's rise in the Cuban Revolution, from doctor to commander to revolutionary hero, is documented. After the Cuban Revolution, Che is at the height of his fame and power. Then he disappears, re-emerging incognito in Bolivia, where he organizes a small group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits to start the great Latin American Revolution. The story of the Bolivian campaign is a tale of tenacity, sacrifice, idealism, and of guerrilla warfare that ultimately fails, bringing Che to his death. Through this story, we come to understand how Che remains a symbol of idealism and heroism that lives in the hearts of people around the world.


Ce coffret de 3 dvd inclut : • CHE, partie 1 : L’argentin • CHE, partie 2 : Guérilla • 74 minutes de matériel en bonus Benicio Del Toro, acteur lauréat d’un Oscar®, propose ici une performance extraordinaire du légendaire révolutionnaire «Che» Guevara. 26 novembre 1956 : une bande de 80 rebelles, menée par Fidel Castro (Demián Bichir), navigue vers Cuba. Parmi ces jeunes rebelles figure le médecin marxiste et soldat argentin, Ernesto «Che» Guevara. Sans pays, à court de ressources et ne carburant que par sa détermination, le groupe livre des batailles sans merci et sanglantes afin de libérer le peuple cubain du joug de la dictature corrompue de Fulgencio Batista. Che et ses soldats luttent pour soutirer les ressources et l’affection de la nation de l’emprise de Batista. Bien que considéré comme un héros par certains, Che devient une personnalité hautement controversée. Après la révolution cubaine, Che est à l’apogée de sa gloire et de sa puissance. Il disparaît ensuite, pour refaire surface incognito en Bolivie où il met en place un petit groupe de camarades cubains et de recrues boliviennes pour mettre en branle la grande révolution latinoaméricaine. Le récit de la campagne bolivienne en est un de ténacité, de sacrifices, d’idéalisme et d’une guérilla qui finalement échoue et signe ainsi la mort de Che. À travers ce récit, nous comprenons pourquoi Che demeure un symbole d’idéalisme et d’héroïsme qui survit toujours dans le coeur des peuples dans le monde entier.

I spent a month in Cuba following the path of the revolution from Santiago to Santa Clara (and beyond from Barracoa to Maria La Gorda) and wanted to complete the journey vicariously from Argentina to Bolivia. This film, based on Che's diaries does that for me. The acting is superb, the story well told without propaganda, and whole is a moving experience. To have been to places shown in the film, to have seen the museum artifacts, and to have spoken with Cubans who lived through the revolution was a privilege.

After watching the film, I couldn't decide if I had just watched a difficult, unweildy classic, or if I had watched a by-the-numbers mess. After listening to Soderburgh's interviews on dsic 3, I can only conclude that this movie was a vanity project by Del Toro, and a cash grab for Soderburgh.

There are moments of brilliance in this film, but they are few and far between. Other reviewers for the Criterion Edition noted that the fiom is 4.5 hours of people sitting in the jungle, and that is largely what it is. Soderburgh offers NO perspective on Che, and oddly enough, Del Toro is rarely on-screen. That being said, when Del Toro is on screen, he does a haunting depiction of Che, probably about as good as could be expected.

Soderburgh shot this entire film with the new handheld RED Camera, and it's an interesting stylistic choice. The colors have a subdued tone, but with vivid detail. It is in stark contrast to the stylistic blue washed Defiance, and works to draw you in to the film, as if it were a documentary.

I really got the feeling that Soderburgh dropped the ball with this film. I think to make a movie on such a polarizing figure as Che, you have to have an opinion, or at the very least, you should include the controversial aspects of his life.
