Time of past OR future Camino
PlanFuture(2023)
Hello - I see the post regarding "the way" movie are old. I have searched and searched and haven't been able to figure out how to stream the movie. I have found it listed on a couple of providers but the movie is "unavailable" or it directs you to a different movie with the same name. Does anyone out there know FOR SURE, where I can got to either rent of buy the movie. I am very techno savvy but I really use some help here. Thanks

I usually go to IMDB to find out what streaming service to use for movies/TV shows. It looks like it's not currently available in the US. 😢

I have two copies of a DVD version (there are several versions) that I picked up at a second-hand bookstore. If you are browsing and the DVDs aren't in some sort of order look for a bright yellow spine, few DVDs have that.

Another way to view the movie is to call the American Red Cross and volunteer to donate platlets. They set you with a screen and streaming to keep you entertained for the two hours you are hooked up. The Way is two hours long. This is the way (no pun intended) I usually watch the movie. It works at my donation center anyway.

There are a number of threads on the forum where posts mention scenes and link to a YouTube video. This video used to say it was in Spanish but it was in English. At any rate it was taken down.

I bought the DVD ten years ago, my brother borrowed it and never returned it, lol. I bought another one off of amazon a few years ago, thankfully.
There's a website called internet archive that you can watch it on. I have no idea the technicalities of the site and like anything on the internet, may or may not be sketchy.

It is only in Spanish (dubbed). There used to be an undubbed version but it seems to have been taken down.
It appears that The Way is currently not licensed for streaming in the US where @JudyWanaWander is trying to watch it.

Please don't post ways to watch the movie illegally. (I don't mean you @lt56ny, but there have been a couple of posts with links to suspect sites)

This works in Canada on Tubi TV;

I have Tubi and watch it often but it I live in Mexico. Not available here. People should check out the sight. It works well and is legal. You can stream on your computer. I have Apple TV and there is an app for Tubi on the Apple app sight.

I use www.justwatch.com to find where movies or TV shows are being streamed. When you access the website it should show you data in your country/region. In France, for example, "The Way - La Route Ensemble" is streaming on Amazon Prime or you can rent it from Apple TV for €3.99.

I like to watch it before I start a camino. I hadn't heard of the movie until after I walked my first camino. My first reaction was how did they find all those good meals on Pilgrim menus ;) :) ;) :) . My first camino a pilgrim menu was first course -head lettuce with an olive or two and a slice or two of a green unripe tomato. Or some bad spaghetti, I think another option was a plate of rice. Second course greasy fatty chicken leg/thigh, or rubbery lomo or hake. Third course was a little plastic yogurt, maybe hopefully a little square of ice cream and of course arroz con leche. Water or VIno Tinto!!!!!! Delicious uggggggg usually 7 or 8 Euros. Vegetarians starved to death!

Sounds like all that "freedom" they always talk about in the US might just be a myth. 🤭
Have you tried the good old fashioned library? Or Peacock? Or Kanopy? Or even Facebook Marketplace?
Otherwise, to skirt around all that "freedom", you might want to investigate using a VPN, and start enjoying what the rest of the world gets to experience 😍

It’s available to rent or buy on iTunes in Australia just checked. Hopefully the US version might have it if you haven’t checked there already?
Alternatively, get a VPN subscription and then use it to set your country to one where it is available to rent on a streaming service like Amazon Prime etc. you will have to watch it on your laptop rather than your tv but if there’s a will there is a way.

@JudyWanaWander ,
I wanted to watch the movie The Way, before my Camino May/June this year, but could not find it anywhere except on Amazon to buy it for $25 . I did not buy. Hopefully some time in the future some sort of network will steam it. My two cents.
Buen Camino. 🇨🇦

Tom is not unlikeable (imo). He's a bit cantankerous, a bit irascible, doesn't suffer fools gladly, but not unlikeable. Btw, did you ever hear of anybody who did suffer fools gladly? When I saw the title 'How to stream the Way', I thought, "Great!" But I soon realised the OP's title should have been "How do you stream 'The Way?'"

Geez,… did I miss that 7/8 Euro pilgrim meal on CF ? small/medium/big town have that same pretty crummy pilgrim meal..
don’t forget French fries with every meal,..
and I paid through out Camino walk between 12/15 euros When ever I had the pilgrim meal. ( lack of choice and options at so many albergues or nearby them)
It sounds like a bargain to me at 7/8 euros. 😆
Cheers to all the pilgrims.
Buen Camino.

I know how influential and important this film is to so many of us. In your search may I recommend this documentary. Believe me I am a big camino addict and have spent about a zillion hours watching videos on YouTube and Vimeo. This doc really captures the meaning of Camino. At least for me it does.

The Way was a low budget independently produced film. Possibly they had only short term licenses for the music. That does seem a little weird to me but it does make more sense for the reason why it isn't streamed in the US. Estevez may not have been able to afford streaming rights.

It is regularly shown on Australian tv (again yesterday) , on SBS 2. They have an app called SBS on demand on which you can often find the movies and programs that have been shown on tv. I wonder if you could access the app in the US?

Fair point; but it’s not compulsory to use your VPN for illegal purposes. I always route through my VPN when on any wifi other than my own.

That categorization of VPN users is actually false. Over 31% of all Internet users, worldwide, utilize a VPN*, and over half of these indicate doing so to protect their privacy and increase security while on public WiFi and over 40% while traveling. Over half (56%) use their VPN to stream media services (Netflix). The vast majority of VPN users are in countries where government control over public speech is considered very high. Only approximately 13% of VPN users do so to access TOR sites (the "dark web"), even while the TOR Project (developers of the open source TOR browser) advise against doing so as it may actually diminish the privacy encryption in TOR. I'm sorry, but suggesting that VPN users do so "to surf the dark web" would be misinformed. But I understand why that misperception is out there.

Just because a tool can be used for nefarious purposes doesn't make the tool bad or not useful for legitimate purposes.

It's often recommended to use a VPN when you are using public Wi-Fi networks to avoid having sensitive information stolen, because someone with nefarious intent could be nearby.

Hi I watched this movie last weekend on Amazon Prime. It’s free here in the UK? Good Luck, it’s worth watching.

I realize that, but the original comment about the VPN just plain had a cringy creepy vibe to it. At least to me it did.

I too had very good meals on the Norte. I think of the Caminos I have done the Norte ranks only behind the Camino from Le Puy for food. A distant second. Overall I do think the food has generally improved on the CF.

From what I have read in source publications writing about free VPN's the overwhelming consensus is to avoid them as your information and viewing habits are usually sold and they do not really care who they are selling it to.

I remember when I asked my kids about the "Dark Web" and they said to me, "Dad, remember what you said your Grandma used to tell you? It's not your business. Well dad the dark web is not your business". Never thought about it since. haha

If you are in the US, you can watch The Way for free on YouTube. I just now checked this to be sure. In the search box, type "The Way full movie". Good luck!

I have some but by no means an expert on this subject. If the music is not in the public domain then they have to negotiate with the owner of the copyright of any music that is used. It would not make sense for a film to use music if there was a statute of limitation on how long the song could be used. That would limit any and all future revenues for the film. You may be correct but I worked for a music management company, my daughter worked for an entertainment lawyer and she was deeply involved in licensing and my cousin worked for a television production company and her job was to secure music rights for tv shows. I asked my daughter about this and she has never heard of limit and neither have I and my cousin never mentioned it.

I was thinking of the problems that kept the civil rights documentary Eyes on the Prize out of view for so long (it became viewable again). Of course that film had more copyright problems due to news footage, photos, speeches, music, etc. The following article goes over this a bit (but written in 2005 it doesn't mention its rebirth). BTW, a court also in the interval deemed that Happy Birthday is now in the public domain.

I like to watch it before I start a camino. I hadn't heard of the movie until after I walked my first camino. My first reaction was how did they find all those good meals on Pilgrim menus ;) :) ;) :) . My first camino a pilgrim menu was first course -head lettuce with an olive or two and a slice or two of a green unripe tomato. Or some bad spaghetti, I think another option was a plate of rice. Second course greasy fatty chicken leg/thigh, or rubbery lomo or hake. Third course was a little plastic yogurt, maybe hopefully a little square of ice cream and of course arroz con leche. Water or VIno Tinto!!!!!! Delicious uggggggg usually 7 or 8 Euros. Vegetarians starved to death!
Hmm... I walked the Camino Frances in 2019 and found the food to be delicious, much different than you described. Perhaps it's improved since you were there, or maybe you were on a another route?

I saw two results for the movie. One was in Spanish and the 2 and a half hour version was actually a different movie.
Sorry, that is so weird! You're right - the YouTube link shows a photo of Martin Sheen in "The Way", but when you click on it, it opens to a completely different movie! I watched "The Way" on YouTube in 2019, but apparently that's not possible now. That photo had me fooled.
As other people on this thread have posted, it seems to be available on Hulu, Netflix, and perhaps at your local library. I hope one of those works for you!

I suppose the OP might just purchase the DVD on Amazon or eBay and borrow a means to watch DVD's. They're not completely disappeared. I have two laptops I don't use anymore with DVD players in them. Anytime I want to watch an old DVD I have or listen to an old CD I use one of them with some good external speakers hooked up.

No one seems to have noticed that @SparkyW in post 51 has suggested a legit online source that works in the US.
Legit may be questioned by some but the Internet Archive has been storing in the US copies of copyrighted material for public retrieval. They even copied some of mine with no permission asked (I like them anyway). They've done this for decades but they haven't been shut down so they must be doing something right.

You are right, that is the only link on this thread that I've found that works in the US, though as Rick says

I listened to a podcast today about the cost of digitized books, and there was some discussion of the Internet Archive and whether what they do is legit or not.

The library in my parents hometown, in a town of 3,000 people, has a copy of the DVD! They wanted to see what I'd be doing so we borrowed and saw it a couple weeks ago. If they hadn't had the DVD, they are able to borrow from all the other libraries in the area, they have a delivery bus that goes between the area libraries if you put a hold on it.

i should have mentioned that it was 10 years ago.
I didn't find any in English.
Can you provide a link to what you found on YouTube?
It is only in Spanish on YouTube here in Mexico also. Does not have English subtitiles. I think the original English language version has been removed from YouTube here. I know I watched it on YouTube last year before I left for my camino.

I know how influential and important this film is to so many of us. In your search may I recommend this documentary. Believe me I am a big camino addict and have spent about a zillion hours watching videos on YouTube and Vimeo. This doc really captures the meaning of Camino. At least for me it does.
thanks! I will watch this also!

Camino Frances(2020)
Hello - I see the post regarding "the way" movie are old. I have searched and searched and haven't been able to figure out how to stream the movie. I have found it listed on a couple of providers but the movie is "unavailable" or it directs you to a different movie with the same name. Does anyone out there know FOR SURE, where I can got to either rent of buy the movie. I am very techno savvy but I really use some help here. Thanks
You can try this, it worked for me. On the google search bar type in:
jamacor, movie the way
Then scroll down to, The Way (2010).gloria.TV
I saved to my desktop and watch it whenever I want. It comes up in English
Good Luck
