There aren't a lot of movies that feature Spain, and most that do focus on the more popular areas, like Barcelona.
This is not a criticism.
But I was headed in the opposite direction and although I had heard of the Camino de Santiago from my husband, I didn't a know a lot beyond the limited information searches that I did myself.
And then I found The Way.
The Way is not a religious film, but it does speak of forgiveness and compassion and understanding and tolerance.
And the landscape...Galicia is featured like another character of the movie. It speaks without words. Many people on Camino forums online claim that they were inspired to walk The Way after seeing this film.
I can understand why.
The Way features a touching story that will inspire wanderlust for this breathtaking corner of Spain that will soon become our home...part-time, it already is.
