Critic Reviews for Walking The Camino: Six Ways To Santiago
Six travelers traverse hundreds of miles along Spain's famed Camino de Santiago by foot in Lydia B. Smith's genial documentary, which gradually reveals itself as part travelogue and part spiritual quest.
The result is a travelogue with self-help bromides, or an Esalen workshop with blisters.
Walking the Camino is easy on the ears as well as the eyes and inspiring to the soul. It may even prompt you to skip the subway and walk home from the theatre - the whole way.
Though some of the pilgrims have deeper, more developed personalities than the average reality show contestant, their rough edges are smoothed out by the film's banal benevolence.
Smith allows these people to speak their minds, and, as the journey progresses, the talk, not surprisingly, becomes increasingly depth-charged.
As travelogue, this is a persuasive introduction. Viewer beware: The impulse to take a hike is strong. Wear sturdy shoes.
Why they've decided to make this journey, whether they'll make it, and what it will mean when they get where they're going are questions that pull us along, every step of the way.
[Smith] gets at the essential inward journey of most of her subjects, and she makes the concept of walking 800 kilometres seem remarkably appealing.
It will nourish your mind, body and soul, and inspire you to embark on your own pilgrimage at some point in your life.
A documentary focusing on six pilgrims and their responses to this daunting and enlightening physical and spiritual journey.
