"Run, Lola Run"
1998
Directed by Tom Tykwer

This stylish cinematic exercise and art house box-office smash is an exciting, non-stop affair in  which the flaming-red-haired Lola is given twenty minutes to get $100,000 to her boyfriend before the mob kills him. The film plays out this scenario three different ways, each building in visceral suspense to a different outcome. A thrill ride with an abundance of visual flair. Audience Award winner, Sundance Film Festival. Letterboxed. German with English subtitles.  81 minutes.

 

 

Guest Comments

From:  "G Force"

"If someone told you that you were about to watch a Dutch film, most likely, you'd already be dreading the thought of it. However, "Run Lola Run" well exceeds teh expectations of many. Filmmaker Tom Tykwer put together a suspensful trio of plots which all kept viewers on their toes. The movie stars Franka Potente who plays Lola, and Moritz Bleibtrau who plays Lola's boyfriend, Manni. When Manni screws up a diamond deal, he calls for quick action, otherwise he'll take a bullet. This puts Lola on the spot, leaving her the task of coming up with 100, 000 Dutch Marks in 20 minutes. The film packs in three different plots, which are all different and unique. I found this foreign film to be astonishing work, especially coming from overseas. Typically, quality movies tend to only come from here in North America. The spectacular background music, and suspensful climax all helped the movie become a well deserving Acadamy Award nominee in 1999 for "Best Foreign Film."
