MADRID (AFP) - "The Argentine", a new movie by Oscar-winning US director Steven Soderbergh based on the life of Latin American revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara, had its world premier Friday in Spain to mixed reviews. The film, which stars Puerto Rican actor Benicio Del Toro, depicts Guevara and Fidel Castro's triumphant guerrilla campaign to overthrow Cuba's government in the late 1950s. The date for the release of a second film by Soderbergh called "Guerrilla" which tracks Guevara's downfall and execution after trying to foment a similar rebellion in Bolivia in the 1960s has not yet been set. Del Toro won the best-actor prize for his depiction of Che in the two movies at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Soderbergh directed Del Toro to the supporting actor Oscar for 2000's "Traffic" which also took the prize for best director, best editing and best writing. Del Toro played a Mexican police officer in the film. But conservative Spanish newspaper ABC said the the main problem of "The Argentine" was the "flatness" of the actor's depiction of Che. "Soderberg tried to keep a distance which makes his film more didactic than political," added top-selling left-wing daily El Pais. Soderbergh, whose other films include "Erin Brockovich" and "Ocean's Eleven", said during a visit to Madrid earlier this week to unveil his film said he did not seek to "glorify" Che but rather show him "just as he was".
