A former Olympic champion wants to compete in the Berlin Marathon one last time.
Do you have any images for this title?
The climax running scenes were shot during the real Berlin Marathon, making it very difficult, because people recognizing Dieter Hallervorden (a well known German actor and comedian) and constantly waving towards him or the camera.
Paul Averhoff enters the Berlin Marathon only a few weeks before the event actually takes place. At this point of time, no further entry would have been allowed, not even a Good for Age entry, as suggested by the film as runners have to apply for this well in advance (usually around 11 months before when the normal registration (now a ballot) is opened). The Good for Age entry for a male runner of 60 years or older would be 3 hours 25 minutes, not 2 hours 40 minutes, as stated in the film.
