A largely inspiring and transporting portrait.
"Strangers on the Earth" raises questions about how it was made, and even whether making it defeats the inherent asceticism of the project.
Surely, there's meaning in them thar hills, but you'll just have to take this film's many words for it.
We are alone on this trip - take it, and this marvellous film, at your own pace.
On-camera observations offer few surprising insights, though the exploration is certainly admirable.
Due to a combination of sophisticated direction, an engaging human element, lofty ideas on the nature of self, and exquisite cinematography, all set a beautiful cello score, it succeeds in a profound way.
The greatest compliment one can pay it is that it's bound to eclipse The Way as the film that people will say inspired them to put one foot in front of the other and make their way to pay Saint James a visit.
A cellist's 600-mile trek with his instrument along an ancient Spanish pilgrimage trail becomes a soulful riff on the all-too-fleeting rhapsodies of travel.
Ironically if you're walking 700 km or 700 miles with other people, you cannot expect them to be strangers on the earth. An engaging doc about the centuries' old pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
Strangers [on the earth] promises a connection and theme will be found between various travellers found on the Camino, but it doesn't really deliver.
The result is enlightening, poignant and even occasionally funny.
Pleasant, but only intermittently engaging.
