A documentary in layers
2 September 2006 | by mdekockSee all my reviews

The documentary The Hands of Che Guevara is a linear tale, built on the stories of several 'first persons'. All the people involved tell about their part in history, each from their own point of view, featuring themselves as the main character. Each story is colored, romanticized and embellished and all stories emphasize the intrepidity of the first person. The stories are told with a great sense for drama and big themes like trust and betrayal, truth and reality, tricks and deceit. By stringing together the small, subjective stories of each person involved, slowly a larger, 'objective' history becomes visible. Like a mosaic from which one slowly distances oneself. Although at the end of the movie it becomes apparent that some stories have been spectacularly embellished, the chain-story they form undeniably leads to present time.
