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.
Plot: 20-years-old Cho-Won (Cho Seung-Woo) is young man with autism. He lives with his highly protective mother Kyung-Sook (Kim Mi-Sook) and younger brother (Baek Sung-Hyun), who sometimes resents the attention his older brother receives from his mother. Through special schooling and taking part in physical activities, Cho-Won has adjusted relatively well into society. Cho-Won also seems to have a knack for running. After placing third in a race, his mother decides to hire a proper coach to train her son. Cho-Won then decides to take part in a marathon. Cho-Won hopes to break the marathon’s fastest record of three hours.

What a wonderful film!!!
I saw this film on a recent trip to Korea and was absolutely blown away! I’m still thinking about it and trying to get my hands on a copy. Seung Woo Cho’s portrayal of an autistic boy whose mother encourages him to start running is brilliant and heartbreaking. The film accurately illustrates the social and private difficulties for people with autism and their families. Based on a true story, you can’t help but fall in love with this boy because he’s so pure-hearted and misunderstood by everyone, even his own family members. His mother even questions her feelings about him, which is something rarely shown in films. Despite the odds, he becomes a champion without meaning to or wanting to, and by the end of the film you are in awe of what this person accomplished. Everyone should see this film and experience the joy and agony. Korean cinema has never been so poignant! Just a warning–you might want to keep a box of tissues beside you, especially for the second half of the film. If you see one foreign film this year, please make it this one!
This is a very warm and poetic film. It’s about a mother’s relationship with her autistic son and her insecurities regarding him, about his desire to run a marathon and how that relates to his relationship with his mother, and about how his running coach inadvertently helps to bring them together. It is one of the most touching films I have seen in many years.
Some people have compared it to Rain Man, but that’s a comparison which does not stand. Firstly, the selfishness of Tom Cruise character and Dustin Hoffman’s overacting make Rain Man a far less touching film because the characters are far less sympathetic. There is also the crucial difference in that in Rain Man the Tom Cruise character really had no interest in his autistic brother and did not wish to really have any type of relationship with him. In Marathon, however, the whole film is about the problems the mother has precisely because she wants to have a relationship with her son. It is this dilemma (the wanting to have a relationship and not really being able to do it) which makes the film so interesting and touching.
Furthermore the acting is very good, the cinematography is rich but not overdone, the music is very good at emphasising the poignancy of particular situations and the film has a wonderful pace: neither too fast nor too slow. All in all a very enjoyable film highly recommended for anyone who wants to smile, laugh, cry and generally feel happy.
