I don't think it really deserves the headline here. Much more of a curate's egg than a consistently shot and edited piece. There just seemed to be error after error in the narration at the start, but if you can get past these, you will probably enjoy the experience.

I am sure that lots of people will like it and you should check it out. The narrator's monotone voice got to me after a while and I had to stop watching. He sounded like one of the narrators you hear when you rent recorders in museums. This is probably more of a criticism of me than of the video. That describe each artifact, painting etc. It does have alot of history intertwined with interviews of varying interest that do sound very familiar to other videos I have seen that have interviewed pilgrims along the way. There are many nice shots of the camino and for Camino video junkies I am sure you will like it and it will be well worth it.
If I may recommend a video called Looking For Infinity. It is far from perfect but it did strike a real cord with me.


(If you watch make sure you go to settings and turn on the subtitles. I know they have it in English. I am not sure if it is subtitled in other languages. There are interviews with people speaking different languages.

If I may, I think that it is very unkind to make such a harsh criticism here. The original poster cannot help his voice and I believe that to overlook is much kinder than to criticise in such a manner. Just my thoughts here, so please don't jump down my neck.

I was not trying to be mean I just said what I thought. After writing that I wrote “This is probably more of a criticism of me than of the video”. I also said I think people will enjoy it. So i am not jumping down your throat I just don’t get your criticism.

This may well be your view, but once a work like this has been published, review and criticism of the cinematography, photography, film and sound editing, script and even the execution of the voiceover are all entirely legitimate.

As an aside, I don't think that the video was published by the OP here. The credits indicate that it was A Luc Pilgrim Production, and largely the work of Phillip Lucas. This is the latest of a perhaps half a dozen videos on his YouTube channel.

Thank you for sharing this. I got distressed about half way through though, and will need to take a break. This time I enabled the sub-titling. Truely dreadful, I am sorry to say.

I am now curious to see if this video actually achieves the noble objectives it claimed at the outset - it is now the only reason to keep watching.
