Movie Info

The winner of six Goya awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress, Javier Fresser's emotional drama tells the true life tale of an eleven year old girl stricken with a terminal illness, and the influence of a powerful conservative Catholic organization during her last days. Eleven year old Camino (Nerea Camacho) suffers from a tumor that is exerting pressure on her spinal cord. As a result, her cervical vertebrae have been fractured, forcing her to endure excruciating medical treatments. Camino and her family all follow the dogma of the Opus Dei, a hard-line, ultra-conservative Catholic organization that believes her suffering is all part of God's greater plan. Now, as this radiant young girl experiences the joys of first love and mystery of death simultaneously, a powerful light shines down from above, illuminating the darkness and revealing the true depths of her happiness for all to see.

Audience Reviews for Camino

  • Nov 02, 2011
    And you thought "The Da Vinci Code" had an unsettling view on religion. Dan Brown's work is kid's stuff. "Camino"´s message can be either life (or love, at least) affirming or very nihilistic, depending on one's interpretation (most will probably veer toward the latter). This not at all subtle movie scared me in ways that no horror film could have.
