Doesn't make any favor to the Camino
6 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The story of a photographer and journalist paired to join a love guru , who is doing a boot camp for couples in trouble along The Camino, to cover the story for a women's magazine. During the trip, the not-very-talkative guru, lead the couples through the Camino giving them tasks to connect to each other and try to solve their problems.

The performances are all mediocre. The leading couple, Malena Alterio and Fernando Tejero, are well known actors in Spain, where they have been paired in two very famous TV comedy series, always playing a couple that hates each other but feels inexplicably attracted to each other. They play the same sort of couple in this movie, but, unlike their TV shows, the script is weak, the jokes old, the situations seen too often, and the story not funny enough overall.

The cinematography is very pretty and reflects the beauty of the Camino and of Northern Spain in spring, and also the sort of people and atmosphere that you find in the road. However, as the story goes, it seems that the movie is promoting the Camino as a sexual sort of road trip. Was it necessary to have the couples go through the Camino? Why not placing them on a cruise, an exotic resort, or a simple mountain escapade where these sort of stories would have been more credible and funny? The movie looks more apt for a TV special than for the big screen because, what is acceptable for a TV show, does not always work out for the big screen. The movie does not make any favor to the leading couple, either, who keeps playing the same role over and over. It is time to grow as an actor, guys! A completely forgettable movie that is not worth the ticket price.
