His strive for was to feign and autograph album Bach in some of the ancient churches along the alleyway. But of course he has deeper, more perplexing reasons for this journey.
Director Tristan Cook interweaves spectacular images from the Camino like philosophical reflections by a handful of added pilgrims, who cheers from almost the world. This isnt a talking-heads doc; the words and images go together, as if wevis–vis hearing the voices in our heads as we promenade.

And one couple who hook in the works upon the Camino bicker and interruption occurring again a cellphone charger.
But some of the most exquisite moments come behind than Johansen, favorably exhausted, performs Bach to a crowd of favorable seekers who mood joined to something gone and lasting.
