Trivia

The main tune of the movie's score is based on Hape Kerkeling's 1991-hit "Das ganze Leben ist ein Quiz" (The whole life is a quiz), written by him, his back-then life partner Angelo Colagrossi and his old friend Achim Hagemann. The song itself is based on the 1988 song "Sì la vita è tutta un quiz" by Renzo Arbore. See more »

Goofs

Close to the end of the movie, Kerkeling and his comrades are seen walking through an eucalyptus grove. When he steps out of it, all of a sudden he spots the towers of the Santiago cathedral in the distance, apparently for the first time. There is no such point on the Camino where it's possible to watch the towers upon exiting an eucalyptus grove. See more »

Crazy Credits

The closing credits are written on a diary accompanied with walking equipment, different photos from the Camino de Santiago and other things, including the cover of the original book the movie is based on. See more »

While I haven't read the original source for this (the book that is), you can feel it coming through. Every ooze and (line) drop suggest something bigger behind this. So while again I can't confirm it, it feels like there is much more to this that made it to the screen. Of course that can be argued about any adaptation. But with a self discovery and/or journey the very famous person (played by an actor and not himself, which makes kinda sense considering the title) is making we are expecting quite a bit out of it.

And the actors do not disappoint, there are quite a few funny and hilarious moments. Be it his attempts at connecting or finding or discovering or other sorts of "failures". But only if you fail and never give up, you truly know where you are and where you should go (pun intended). Shortcuts included ...
