The Way

The Way

This wonderful film starring Martin Sheen is a story of four unlikely people

who meet up and befriend each other on the pilgrimage

journey from France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

It is the Way of St James, a pilgrimage journey which takes

the travellers through beautiful scenery and small towns

and villages.


With picturesque scenery, interesting characters and a wonderful

sound-track of music including James Taylor, this film inspires.

I loved watching

this film. It is a lovely story.
The vicissitudes along the way, the interactions of the people,
the hardships of the journey, the good and sometimes unfortunate happenings
all make for a wonderful film.
The pilgrims walked the journey carrying back packs as pilgrims had done this
same jouney since the middle ages.  They received stamps along the way at
different stages of the journey.
  Spiritual, religious, health
reasons and writer's block, which a writer from Ireland had previously suffered from
were reasons given for the pilgrimage. 
The Way of St James is a spiritual experience which is portrayed beautifully in this film.
Well recommended viewing!
