Wonderful film - moving and uplifting., 1 Dec. 2011
The Way is my favourite release this year so far.
I originally went to see it at the cinema as I had some time on my hand and was there for a coffee. I looked at the film schedule and read the synposis. As I like Martin Sheen and James Nesbitt in almost everything I have seen them do I went in. I was also aware of the old pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela with its history and underground conspiracy theory histories. I am not at all religious but I am interested and wanted to see the sights along The Way.
The countryside, and the filming of it, is fabulous. The storyline is full of clever wit. It has pathos and is uplifting as the four main characters unveil more about themselves as the journey progresses. You cannot fail to me moved and uplifted by this great film
