Marcelo Ballve: Che Guevara's Eccentric Family

The new film The Motorcycle Diaries focuses on the life of revolutionary Che Guevara before he became a revolutionary. Commentator Marcelo Ballve -- whose family was close to Guevara's in Argentina -- says the communist icon's eccentric parents played an important role in shaping their son's fate, which included a prominent role in the Fidel Castro revolution in Cuba.
