Lost in translation

As a lover of diary-based history, I would like to have given this a higher score. The film maker went to great expense to travel with a full crew to Bolivia into the valleys, isolated villages and primitive camp grounds used by the guerrillas in their flight from the Bolivian army. Villagers and farmers who were eye-witnesses to the months-long chase and eventual capture of Guevara and his men described what they saw at great length and with obvious emotion. Yet not ONE WORD, not a single phrase of their valuable stories was translated. Guevara's diary, the Bolvian headlines, radio reports - all were translated. But none of the eye-witnesses were given the respect of an interpreter. A real shame. A well-executed film completely gutted of effectiveness for lack of the cost of simple translation.
