This is what they say:
Japanese Madoka Mayuzumi walked from St Jean Pied-de-Port in the spring; Brazilian Milena Salgado went in the summer; and Rob Jorritsma left his native Holland to walk from Saint-Jean in the winter. Larry Boulting filmed all three - often at the same series of places along the Camino - to make this profound and delightful film. All pilgrims seeing it will begin by envying these pilgrims the chance they have had to tell their story to so sympathetic an ear and to so wide an audience; but on more mature reflection, will realise that these stories are in fact their own. Madoka, Milena and Rob represent the more sensitive and the more articulate parts of ourselves. Each is special, each is unique, as all pilgrims are; but in the end, this film tells us, we have more in common, across nationality, age, background and belief than we could imagine possible.

I have got a copy and I loved it. A bit confusing the first time I watched it as it switches back and forth - not only between the spring, summer and winter pilgrims - but also between the time they are on the camino and when they are back in their own countries, talking about the camino.
In a similar vein, the Astur-Leonese Amigos are organising a cycle of films En el Camino de las Estrellas over the next few weeks at the Filmoteca de Asturias in Oviedo:

El gnomo de la Catedral (1942)
Oviedo, Principado de Asturias (1942), both by Justo de la Cueva
Francesco, giullare di Dio (1950), Roberto Rossellini
La Dama de Alba (1965), Rovira Beleta
and closing with Buñuel's Vía Láctea
