(Korean with English subtitles) This hit inspirational movie follows an autistic young man, who finds solace only in running. His mother is the caring force that never gives up on him. Even though both Mother and son suffer from family and financial issues, they manage to find a former marathon champion -- now a lethargic old man - to serve as his coach for an upcoming marathon.Written by
The film pokes fun at the classic film 'Rain Man' in the scene where the coach tries to get Cho-won to solve maths equations. Cho-won can't solve any difficult equations in his head, and it's literally raining in the foreground. See more »
This is a film that captures the fine nuances of human emotions (or the inability to express them in the case of the autistic character). It explores in a realistic and heartfelt manner a family with an autistic child, and the outside world from which the child is protected. Thanks to a good script, good acting, and good production all round, their story was brought to life and we can really feel for the characters in this movie. On the one hand, this film is complex as it touches on many different themes (I leave it for the viewers to find out), but on the other, it is so simple as it touches on the deepest of our roots and emotions.
