4.0 out of 5 stars Buen Camino, 27 July 2011
This review is from: The Way [DVD] (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed "The Way". It is the story of an American father (Martin Sheen) who goes to Europe to collect the body of his son, who has been killed in an accident while starting the pilgrimage known as "The Camino de Santiago". The "Camino" starts in France and finishes in North Western Spain.

He decides to finish the route with his son's ashes. I feared that the movie would be too sentimental for my liking but this is not the case.

Thanks to some excellent acting and a well-written script we get to see into the lives of Sheen's character and the companions he meets along the way. They are all doing the pilgrimage for their own reasons but the movie never becomes maudlin as it explains their stories.

A lot of credit must go to Sheen's son, Emilio Estevez, who directed and wrote the story.

Please don't give plot lines away- maybe the bit about lining the route with his son's ashes was not a spolier but it sounds like it. Thanks.

Haunted didnt say anything about "lining the route" they said "finish the route with his son's ashes", which to me said they took/carried the ashes on the route. Through your mis-quote YOU have given the plot away, not them. Perhaps therefore its you who should be more careful.
