Exploring themes of spirituality, wellbeing and religion, this is the inspirational journey of six strangers from New Zealand and Australia walking the 800km Camino de Santiago to overcome the personal and physical trauma that life has dealt them. Through blisters, shin splints and heat, the Camino forces pilgrims to defy their age and physical ability, while also acting as a catalyst for change. Both heart-breaking and inspirational, 'Camino Skies' is an uplifting story about everyday people doing the extraordinary.
An entertaining group of walkers on this famous pilgrimage
This film follows a group of New Zealanders over a wide age range who are walking the approximately 800km journey along tracks, roads and even highways. They are determined, and make good company for us as viewers. You can imagine that changes in weather, and the sheer amount of walking makes us pleased that we are indeed watching them. As you would expect, various health issues come up, along with blisters and injuries, but the audience in the cinema are hopeful that all will reach the final destination. I do have one feature of the film that annoyed me. The cinematographer seemed to deliberately use shaky camerawork, in the belief that gave a more dramatic feel to the proceedings. Well, it didn't. Much of the film did not have shaky images, and those images were often very enjoyable. Pity. Overall though, a very interesting coverage, and not overlong.
