I'm THRILLED this movie is going to be broadcast on "La 2" (TVE2) tomorrow/Wednesday night at 10pm Spain time. Fortunately, I'll be able to watch it in its original version, but you can watch it (probably!) online, in Spanish, at http://www.rtve.es/television/la-2-directo/ .

I can't wait! I can't wait!! yeah Haven't seen it yet as it wasn't shown in Spain (oddly enough, as far as I noticed). Woo Hoo!!

Saludos, MadridMan bounce

I saw it last year on the big screen in Houston. It's a splendid movie especially for people who feel about Spain the way we do.

Emilio Estevez has also written an autobiography (co-written with Martin Sheen) titled "Along The Way", which although it's not specifically about this movie, it does cover the story of making this movie and will be interesting to many of you.

Oh, no! Remember the last scene in this movie where the group continues on to the monastery on the coast? If it's the same one, a nearby transformer was struck by lightning on Christmas day and the 300-year old monastery was totally ruined.

Article in English at http://elpais.com/elpais/2013/12/25/inenglish/1387998513_647092.html

"The A Virxe de Barca monastery in Muxia, Galicia, was left in ruins on Christmas Day apparently after the spread of a fire caused by a lightning strike on a nearby electrical transformer. The emergency services received a call at 8.30am on Wednesday reporting that the sanctuary, an emblematic location for pilgrims on northern Spain's Costa da Morte, had been engulfed by flames. Fire crews and volunteers battled the blaze, but to no avail. There was no way to stop it, said the mayor of Muxia, in A Coruña province, adding the sanctuary was ruined.

That is so sad! On Christmas morning I got a whatsapp message from my cousin with a photo of the fire! We had just gone there last summer together. What a spectacular setting. I wonder if they will rebuild it?
