For this Film Dieter Hallervorden prepared himself by jogging every day for nearly six months. As a result he lost 11Kg weight. See more »
The film presents the finish of the Berlin Marathon in the Olympic Stadium. However, the Olympic Stadium has never been the finish of the Berlin Marathon. Since 2003, the finish line has been located at the Brandenburg Gate. See more »
This is really a good movie, reminding especially German viewers how good an actor Dieter (Didi) Hallervorden actually is. The script helps a lot, even if you're younger you can relate to what's happening. And both sides (actually multiple sides) are portrayed evenly. There's a reason for the behavior of the people/characters at work here (no pun intended in that case).
Growing old and losing ones ability to do things is not easy. Especially accepting things as what they are or have become. But in this case it's about not stopping and overcoming obstacles. It's not like you don't know where this one is going (again no pun intended). But the way the material is treated and the acting goes hand in hand with the script to make a very touching movie!
