Run Lola Run is a masterpiece of kinetic cinema. Every nuance of the film - from the cinematography, to the editing, to the explosive performances, to the way the film plays with time and symbolism - combines to produce a singular plot of desperation and desire. The film does the multiple perspective plot device well, without feeling cliched. A frenetic and crazy action film that pays off in a satisfying way.

"Run Lola Run" by Yojimbo

A young woman receives a phone call from her boyfriend telling her that if he doesn't get 100,000 Deutchmarks within 20 minutes he's a dead man. It tells of the consequences of the phone call in 20 minutes of real time three times over, each containing a slightly differing timeline, thus showing how minor incidents or coincidence can have a massive knock on effect to not only your life, but those around you. Run Lola Run is very much a product of its time; the techno soundtrack, grunge fashion and fascination with the mathematics of probability (ie "the butterfly effect") all reek of the 1990s, but Run Lola Run still feels strangely fresh, probably because of its brisk, no-nonsense pace and 75 minute running time meaning it never gets too caught up in pretentious navel gazing. I could hav...

Run Lola Run review

Lola (Franka Potente) gets a phone call from her distressed boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu). Manni looses 100,000 marks belonging to his crime boss by accidentally leaving it on a train. A bum gets the money while Manni blames Lola for being so sensitive and for believing love can solve anything. Lola asks help from her father and finds out a secret. She gets shot after the cops chase Manni and her. On her 2nd run, she discovers her father arguing and uses a stolen gun to persuade him. She witnesses Manni getting run over by a van. Lola’s final run she gambles to win more money and nobody dies and everything goes well with Manni's dilemma.

Potente’s shows a sincere portrayal of Lola and soundtrack was very upbeat. The directing style was distinctive, eclectic and fast pace...

Run Lola Run

This movie is awesome. It is about a girl, Lola, who answers the phone only to find out that her boyfriend has lost his mob-boss's money: 100,000 Deutschmarks. If he does not get the money by the time his boss arrives in 20 minutes, then he is dead. So Lola goes in search of the money. But once the scenario comes to an end, another one starts, beginning exactly the same way as before, but one minor detail changes, which leads to a domino effect, changing the whole outcome.

I really liked the start of the movie: the crowd of people, with commentary in the background. I liked the dynamics of that scene. When the same scenario began 3 or 4 times, I was sort of confused. Did the same thing happen more than once, with a different outcome, or did the girl imagine it? But looking at the plot ...
