The Way

The film, not anything to do with Opus Dei.

Went to see it with my Mum yesterday, up London.

On the plus side it presents a positive view of Catholicism.

On the downside that view is, for the most part, from the perspective of from the edges in. Dipping in.

The way the film explained Europe to an American audience was a little grating, but it was not without some humour too. A tad heavy handed.

The best characters were the supporting ones, sice what is essentially a road movie on walking boots, affords the opportunity of plenty of short encounters.

So quite good. The thurible in Santiago de Compostela is always worth seeing. Oh no, I've spoilt the ending. Well we knew where they were going to arrive.
