However, during the course of their journey their ideologies gradually change. Although it forms only a small part of Guevara's diaries, Salles and Granado believe that it was while witnessing the injustices at the San Pablo leper colony that Guevara made his biggest leap of faith.

For there, patients were separated both literally and symbolically from doctors, nurses, and nuns by the treacherous site river. During his birthday celebrations on the doctors' side, Guevara decides that he would rather spend his time with the patients he had become so fond of and—despite his severe asthma and protestations from Granado about the dangers—he jumps in and swims to the other side.

His river crossing metaphorically marks a significant change in his identity, the point at which he realises that what people need is not his scientific knowledge as a doctor, but his desire to bring about social change.

Director Walter Salles says that, for him, this was one of the highlights of the film: This was where Ernesto and Alberto spent more than three weeks of their journey and entered a reality that was drastically different from anything they found elsewhere.

Several people who played lepers in the film had been patients at the actual leper colony, and this granted an additional gravity and density to our work. Throughout the film, the pair are forced to grapple with ethical dilemmas about their role as medics.

Guevara treats people for different conditions when asked and, at times, is frustrated by his inability to help.

He criticises the work of a leprosy expert, who, because of his status, is used to people praising him and accepting his work unquestioningly. Other particularly poignant moments come when Guevara and Granado refuse to wear rubber gloves when treating people with leprosy because it signifies a hierarchical division between them; they are also refused food by the colony nuns because they don't go to mass. Granado says that after this journey, he ceases to be just a doctor and becomes a doctor of the people.

I believe that Granado is right in his understanding.

Granado, a biochemist, himself remained faithful to the profession until the end. He founded the medical school in Santiago de Cuba and fought for the same principles, but on a different front. It's enlightening how these guys were faithful to themselves through their own particular paths. However, the film does not overindulge in political posturing or preach, and is frequently punctuated by humour.

The ideological development of the pair is only part of the film. Womanising Granado and earnest Guevara are an amusing duo and are as mischievous in their exploits as they are worthy.

Structuring his memoir as a collection of impromptu notes jotted down in medias res , Ernesto gives the reader a compelling self-portrait of himself as a unique individual with his own set of personal goals and questions. Sign In Sign Up.
