It is like an awakening to stay warm with family.
a touching adult movie - I have recommended this to several friends.
Excellent film and beautiful story.
A realistic story about the variety of possible relationships along the way. Beautifully done and told! It all happens on the Way.
Best movie I've seen this year.
great movie and acting was wonderful
An example of why it pays to stop and smell the roses every once in a while!
Very thoughtful movie. Characters developed and evolved in a truly human way. Heart warming.
The best movie of 2011. Everything about this movie is Oscar-worthy: the story, the acting, the directing by Emilio Estevez, and the film's message "You don't choose a life, you live it!"
Very good story. Nice to see the father-son dynamic on this project in Emilio and Martin. Also, discussed the film with my mom and aunt as they each know people who have done the trek in years past.
good movie wow
A nice little movie with a good parallel between Father and Son.
The Way is a moving movie about relationships and renewal of the spirit. Martin Sheen is terrific as the main character who is recovering from his only child's sudden death. The cinematography is gorgeous. It can be a bit predictable at times and a little unbelievable but that is the Camino.
Nice story and funny. Beautiful scenery. A little slow though.
This movie was very humorous and spiritual at the same time. It proved that you don't need a mega budget blockbuster to entertain and enlighten the audience around the world!
Excellent movie with Martin and son Emilio. Sometimes funny parts too. 5/5 in my book
Simple. Beautiful. Inspiring.
Beautiful movie, both cinematically and emotionally. One of the best I've seen lately.
The most inspirational movie I have seen in ages! Highly recommended!
Emilio Estevez directs his father in a film that breathes life into the audience. If you're looking for inspiration - travel. If you're looking for a cheaper option - watch this film.
Great movie. Very heartwarming.
This was an excellent movie, it surprisingly had quite a few funny parts in it too. The cast was great and the characters were likeable.
Wonderful and inspiring. Great scenery.
Scenery is amazing. Acting is worth an Oscar
This is a real gem of a film. Getting to know the various characters and building slowly, just as one would discover personal truths during a pilgrimage, the movie puts us in a Camino state of mind. And, it's revelation! Everyone should see this film. For armchair tourists, it's an amazing way to visit the Camino without an airplane.
A great film for all. Inspirational!!!
A wonderful grown up movie so well directed and acted you felt like you were walking the road to Santiago also, being the 5th person! I would recommend this movie to my friends in a heart beat!
I won a free pass to this movie preview. I enjoyed the storyline. LOVED the Dutchman especially since I just had a visit from a Dutch cousin and the accent was so familiar and comforting. Typical Dutch stereotype played out in the movie, but found the character very endearing. Found the Irish dude tiresome. The Canadian woman did NOT look Canadian at all. I found the movie started to drag a bit about 3/4 way through, as it is quite a long movie. I wish that Martin Sheen's character would have talked more. I felt his feelings did not come out enough on screen, and that is what the story was centred around. A touching story, but not as emotional as I would have expected.
Moving, beautifully photographed story of a professional (Martin Sheen) who does not approve of his only son (Emilio Estevez) opting to walk the Camino de Santiago in Europe instead of finishing his PhD. When an accident claims his son's life only one day into the journey, he decides to finish it, scattering his son's ashes as he goes. Along the way, he meets with a Canadian woman fleeing an abusive relationship, an Irish travel writer struggling with writer's block. Comic relief is supplied by a pot-smoking Dutchman trying to lose weight to regain his wife's affection. If you're looking for a film that makes you think about what's really important in life, and don't mind the fact that
