“It’s about the journey, not the destination”: an adage that takes on its full meaning in this Don Quixote-inspired documentary. In defiance of his age, 73-year-old Manuel decides to leave Spain to follow a historical trail in the United States. But the journey would be unthinkable without his faithful burro, Gorrión . . . In this neo-realist road movie with echoes of the Old West, filmmaker Pereira blurs the boundaries between drama and non-fiction.
