    I’m looking forward to obtaining this soundtrack. I’ve managed to listen to a few short clips and I have to say that Tyler Bates’ score sounds incredible. Looking forward to hearing this over some good monitors.

    What a terrific film!! Emilio has done a fabulous job; I had tears running down my cheeks the entire movie. The journey between parent and child can be long, but it is much closer than we think. The journey with my mom was amazing; The Way brought many of the touching, funny and aggravating moments to mind.

    Thank you!!!
    (Oh and I’m a HUGE fan of all the Esteves men…Emilio, Charlie & Martin is well….he’s MARTIN!)

  3. James says:

    I saw this movie few minutes ago and I was speechless, This movie was more than GREAT,
    The plot isn’t too deep, but the story is truly moving. The acting by the four characters is fantastic, and like any road movie, it is more about the characters getting to find their inner-selves rather than walking from point a to point b. Only here – it is more welcomed because of the fact that is what the Camino de Santiago is all about.

    saw the movie yesterday with my husband. We were both blown away. So powerful for a quiet, thought provoking flick! – and loved the soundtrack!

  5. Jeanne says:

    My husband and I just finished watching The Way. A beautiful and thoughtful film. We laughed and cried. Mostly, we were brought to our life with all its ups and downs, sorrows, joys, what’s been lost and what we’ve found. Thank you, Emilio, for this gift. I’m recommending it to all my friends.

  6. Emilia Tokes says:

    This movie is a slap on my face. I wanted to do the Compostella myself, I sort of chickend out – this movie has put me back on track ! I can only admire Emilio – we have only one letter apart in our names since mine is Emilia with an a – for making this movie !

  7. michael oberthaler says:

    I rented this great movie last night. I will now go and purchase it so can share it with friends and family.The music was awesome and uplifting too. This movie actually helps me to refocus on the big picture again. Ones inner self can be truly amazing when graced by God our father in heaven, our wonderful creator. May we all find the way!

  8. rasad says:

    I have seen this twice. Its been amazing to watch this movie. One has to watch this movie in their lifetime. I really liked the background score and music of this movie. I really liked the relationship between the father and his son. I got in to tears when i first watched this movie. It inspired me a lot to respect my father and moreover to travel to new places in search of peace.
