I love that Emilio Estevez!
I lvoe love those lines………..”you don’t choose a life dad. You live one.”
Classic……………..I will use it in my art journalling! and on my own Journey. Thanks
I walked the Camino in the Spring of 2010. I walked with Canadians, Americans, Irish, Dutch, Germans and Italians. Some were walking for sport, some for spiritual reasons and some to lose weight. I even met a man from Prince Edward Island who had a heart
attack and died on the Camino.
Emilio and Martin from what I have seen so far of “The Way”, I think it will be a great representation of the Camino. I look forward to seeing the movie. God Bless you.
May God bless you abundantly for making this movie. Just heard about it from our daughter who heard Emilio speak about it at the FOCUS conference. Look forward to the movie. Thank you!
Hi all fellow Pilgrims out there,and would be travelers,i did the Camino last August 2010,and had a great time,and met some good Friends along the Way,and need to get back there as soon as pos,,will be great to see the Film ,
I started my pilgrimage in 1999, continued in 2001 and finished in 2004. I understand every feeling that seems to be pouring off of the screen in these short clips. Live Life! That is the best part of the Pilgrimage. LIVE LIFE!
I walked the Camino in November 2010 and I met the film crew in o cebreiro. is there any chance that “the way” will be in in theatres in Europe??? I really hope so!
O my god, time passes by too quickly, I just realized, that I walked in 2009, not 2010…
Me too, I did in 2009. How time flies..
Yep, I did the whole route from St. Jean in 2009 as well. And then the English Route, and out to Finnistere. Would dearly love to do it again. BUT, also want to walk up from Seville. Are we mad or what?
I have been working on a documentary about Dred and Harriet Scott for the past four years. One of the reasons I write, and write documentary, is because of Emilio Estevez. Ever since I saw “Men at Work,” so many years ago, I have made it a point to watch every film Emilio Estevez ever wrote or directed. I have always had the feeling deep down that here was a man who was going to do a work of importance — and I don’t mean necessarily of “cinematic importance,” (an ephemeral and trivial term, at best). I mean a work of emotional importance — work that touches people’s lives, that changes their minds about who they are, causes them to re-evaluate the relationships around them. Both “Bobby” and “War at Home” contain brilliant moments that I still remember even now. Follow God’s leading, Emilio. Follow your heart for people and your desire to say what you want to say in the way you say it best. Those who will hear, will hear.
I walked the Camino in October 2009, following the death of my brother Charles. Towards the end I walked for a short while with a Canadian who had met Emilio Estevez and Martin Sheen when he had diner in a hotel at Roncesvalles. He said they were making a film and were very friendly and eager to find out how he found the Camino.
In November 2009 I was attending a friends 30th birthday celebration weekend in Marakesh and the whole time we kept bumping into the cast and crew all over the town.
I have to say that they looked liked the most hard working and congenial cast and crew I have ever seen, especially durring a scene in Djamaa El Fna – Square, where Martin Sheen took numerous takes walking to some point way beyond human view (we were looking on from a roof top cafe). He was wearing a hiking jacket and rucksack and it was pretty hot!
It looked to me like it was maybe the last scene they shot because they certainly looked to be in a celebratory mood afterwards. At all times during the shoot they were all very friendly to anyone who aproached them and after the wrap, Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez seemed only too happy to put thier arms round the shoulders of a whole whole lot of people waiting to have their photos taken with them.
It was a pleasure to watch some of the shoot and I really can’t wait to see the film.
The film will be my Camino this year, so as time goes by, it will fill in the gap. I am looking forward to its release. It seems as if all the joy, pain, introspection, self discovery, and on and on are in it. Will walk with you, Martin, Emilio, et al.
If you are curious about the “alias”, I’ll give you a hint: it is my Camino name.
I only hope that this movie will be released in the not too distant future. I walked sections of various routes of the camino alone 4 times– will go a 5th time this summer with others for the first time– and would love for all the people I know who cannot travel there to see what it’s like.
I had walked in honor of my brother who disappeared as a child many years ago, the apparent victim of an abduction.
My friend Teresa and I started walking the camino from le Puy en Velay in central France in Sept 2008 and will be doing our 4th section in May this year. Due to commitments this is the only way we can do it at present. Loving it so much and very excited about this film. It will let us see a great deal of what is ahead.
First Class film and totally blown away with it Hope it gets more coverage world wide
I am not familiar with the Camino, but look forward to learning about it when the film comes out. I had a lump in my throat just watching the short father/son scene in the car. Onward and Upward!
This was a deeply moving film that will touch many hearts. Thank God for all of you who have worked so hard to produce something so beautiful. May God bless you and keep you.
Wow–what a scene! Grabs you by the throat And heart!
Can’t wait to see the film–where can I get the DVD?
I plan to take the pilgrimage before the movie is released in the states. The clips from the movie feel so real to me and what I need in my life right now. Thanks for making a movie that will touch so many people’s hearts and souls.
I got to know about the camino when two friends sent me differnt books about the way. I realized that I needed to answer the question for myself, wether I believe in God. So I did the CF four years ago. It didn’t take me long to get the answer. It was worthwhile the effort. I believe.
Walking my Camino May 2011 and after seeing the clip I realized why I hadn’t already released my sister’s ashes, she was meant to join me on my journey to her final resting place. It will indeed be a very special one for me.
this sounds familiar
I’ll walk the way September 2012, I hope to see this movie before the trip.
I’m from Honduras and don’t think they will show the film here, anyway I’ll looking to seen it.
I can’t wait to see the film. I cycled the Camino with my husband from Burgos to Santiago in April 2000. We arrived in Santiago on my 50th birthday, just as planned. I will be back!
I did my Camino in 2004. It was a life changing experience. I was drawn to go on this journey for some unexplainable reason at the time but 2 years later the reasons were to be clear to me and If i had the courage and faith to do that journey on my own and adverture i had to courage to face the challanges life was to throw at me. At my darkest moments I could draw on my camino and get strengh from my memories and people I met along the path. I saw the trailer for this in cinema and was overcome with emotion and memories came flodding back. Cant wait to see the full film. will need tissues i recokon. Thanks Emilo for bringing this story to the cinema and showing people this amazing place and experience.x Ann Marie, Limerick, Ireland
My father is walking the Camino at the moment. It is greatly important for him make peace with his past event though he has been such a great father all along… I have made a promise to him, that I will walk at least once before my time is up – and I will for sure. I miss him a lot, and hope for him he will find whatever he is looking for.
I will for sure watch this movie with him!
I walked the Camino 10 years ago in my 50′s. After the first few days I remember thinking that ther were a lot of crazy folks doing this. After a few more days I remember thinking I was one!!! And what an honor it was to be among such holy company.
We walked from Roncesvalles to Santiago 2007 with my friend and his twelve years son. Back to Camino 9/2011. No from St.Jean- Santiago about six weeks. The athmosphere and kindnes of local people and other pilgrims. You cannot buy it. Be humble and take care of other people as it is possible. And you get all back thousand times.This is bigget than life. Hardly cannot wait. Buen Camino
I walked the Camino in September 2009, on behalf of my brother, who passed away in August that year. I am not a catholic but my brother was a devout convert to the faith. He suffered from manic depression for most of his life and his faith definitely helped him to deal with his condition.
For me the Camino provided me with the space and time to come to terms with the reality of the sudden death of my brother Charles. The way is an experience that cannot really be described properly with words. It is a process that has to be experienced.
The plot of this film looks pretty similar to my experience in September 2009 and I can’t wait to see it! I’m sure it will bring back some very special memories.
I watched this film last night (2nd time in a day) and have to say that Estevez and Sheen did an extraordinary job with this film. Not even a quarter hour into the film and I was already crying (don’t want to add any spoilers). Let’s just say that a loss of a child is a pain that cannot be put into words. I really hope this film gets out to a very large audience as I’ve read that Emilio did not have a very large P&A budget.
I have only come upon this today. I have watched the clips over and over again and read all the comments. I am crying already. Funny, its because of the Estevez interview regarding Charlie that brought me to the clip and I knew it was a spiritual film from a very spiritual man who is being used by God to bring a message. I love this! I can hardley wait to see the film. Bless you. Hebrews 12:1
For twelve years I dreamt of “one day” walking the Camino. That dream was realized in the fall of 2011. It is nearly the most physically and mentally challenging thing I’ve done, and yet, outside of having my children, the most rewarding. The answers you find on the Camino, the daily “miracles”, the beauty of the country and the people you met from all over the world. Truly the only international ‘event’ I can think of – everyone has the same goal, to arrive in Santiago having found what they seek. Buen Camino.
Apologies – I meant fall 2010.
