Where are my boots?By johnn (3 reviews) from wilts , 11 Jul 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I gave this a review and five whole stars because it did capture something very close to the experience of walking the Camino Frances. I wallowed in happy memories stimulated by every vista.
If you have been then I'm sure you will love this, despite it's (minor) flaws as a film. If you are thinking of walking the road, it will give you a little taster... People come from all over for all sorts of reasons and firm friendships are forged along the way. The film captures this very well indeed.
If you are not interested in the Camino, I wonder if the film will work quite as well as it did for me, though I do think I would still have enjoyed it. (4 stars?) I like films like this but if there is a criticism, then, for me, the supporting characters were just a little one dimensional. But then how much can you cram in to the time? I could have watched it if it was twice as long.
It made me search out my 'Compostelle' and my pilgrims passport and yearn to somehow find a month free and a few spare quid to go all over again. Where are my boots?

the wayBy a customer , 15 May 2013a very enjoy able movie the acting the scenes the back grounds it tells a very good story the 4 many actors were brilliant
Everyone should watch thisBy a customer , 09 May 2013This is the best film I've seen for years. It is a heartwarming tale where you can really connect with all the characters- it had me both crying and laughing. I was so inspired that I'm even going to walk the Campino myself soon! It is a film for everyone- my parents, my fiance and my brothers all loved it.

An absolute must see!By lacylarsen (2 reviews) , 05 May 2013Brilliant, brilliant film! Funny, sad, thought provoking, well scripted, beautiful. The first film I have seen in ages that I have recommended to everyone, it's definitely in my top ten films.
These Boots Kept me going!By JakeDaJeweller (14 reviews) , 15 Apr 2013Was this a good film, Yes and no! I can't say that I liked 'Tom Avery' (Martin Sheen) a great deal, far too self-centered for my liking both before and during the walk, I never saw much softening even when apex of his walk was reached. He said as he scattered the last of his son's ashes that he had nothing to take home, the ghost of his son said he did, at the pace he took the walk he could not of seen or felt much. Even when he scattered ashes along the way he made them appear repulsive! Just him found a character of no graces. Overall though I did enjoy the film, the scenery was astounding, the pace of the story was kept at the right pace and the bonding of four totally unconnected characters worked! Although I doubt if the four will ever meet up again! Recomend watching with a good glass of wine and reflect on the things you wanted to do and did not.
Amazing Insight into Being a PelegrinoBy ancora (6 reviews) , 17 Mar 2013I have always wondered why people walk the pilgrim's route to Santiago and thought it must just be for Catholics but this film showed me everyone has their own personal reason to go on what must be a life-changing experience. I loved this film.
