A mentally disabled man from a small village trains for a big city marathon
26 August 2006 | by jay_stormeSee all my reviews

We've seen bits and pieces in a number of other movies, but just the same, this movie's well done with a light touch and a lot of humor. Excellent performances by main characters and supporting cast. There are no real bad guys here. Themes: disability is an arbitrary category -- who's really disabled here? Running as a metaphor for goals and journeys, exploitation of the "weak", family love/loyalty, and dignity that should be accorded to all.

The writers are clever in that the story takes place in a village setting not the big city. Story probably wouldn't work in an urban setting. If anyone saw the Iranian film, "Children of Heaven" -- another film about family love/loyalty with a running/race theme a while back, they'll like this film as well.
