I have seen a lot of camino films, some good and some just OK.
Last week I watched one of the most honest films I've ever seen on the camino. It is called The Surgeon and the Saint and I think every wanna be pilgrim should watch it - especially those who are not really fit but think they'll get by once they start walking.
The surgeon is a 70+ year-old man, not very religious, not very fit, who decides to walk the camino to give thanks for his career and for his family. Even though he is a man of science, he is also hoping for a miracle - his newest grandchild was born with a mental and muscular disorder and has been given almost no hope of ever walking.
The surgeon invites an estranged son to walk with him and another son, a documentary film maker, goes along to record the pilgrimage.
The filming is sometimes jerky, but this only adds to the honesty of the film and it is fascinating to observe the interaction between father and sons and how the father starts off in control, with high expectations. He has made his plans and they must fall in line! It is even more fascinating to see how the camino teaches everyone a lesson.
This film is only 56 minutes long but it packed more into it than most films twice as long.
