In honor of Che’s travelling companion, Dr. Alberto Granado, who died yesterday at age 88, here’s a song from the soundtrack of The Motorcycle Diaries:
The song is nicely translated in the subtitles. It’s a poignant and fitting reminder of what the two revolutionaries (who were not revolutionaries yet during their motorcycle journey through South America) must have felt when their grand tour came to an end. Especially Granado, who was as indelibly moved by it as his friend “Fúser”. Watch till the end and you’ll see the REAL Dr. Granado as he was in 2004, when the movie was made…an old man, but one who never forgot, and never stopped loving his friend.
Granado vive, la lucha sigue.
