For those about to walk the Camino, we salute you.
Experimental documentary in which Dutchman Martin de Vries uses a selie-sticks to reveal his experiences as he embarks on the Camino de Santiago, a 1600 kilometer walk which takes him through France to Spain. Of course there are beautiful images of the mostly desolate surroundings and Martin turns out to be an engaging personality, but the rigid visual structure and his reports on his experiences do not reveal much depth. It's only in the second half that De Vries reveals a bit more about his reasons for taking on this gruelling challenge and how his self-imposed pilgrimage has affected him personally. There may be quite a few dull stretches here, but Camino may get you thinking about putting on those hiking boots (again) yourself. And those who love hking themselves will probably enjoy this a bit more. And for anyone taking on El Camino: I salute you!
