Product Description

Product Description

A thrilling post-MTV, roller-coaster ride, RUN LOLA RUN is the internationally acclaimed sensation about two star-crossed lovers who have only minutes to change the course of their lives. Time is running out for Lola (Franka Potente). She's just received a frantic phone call from her boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who's lost a small fortune belonging to his mobster boss. If Lola doesn't replace the money in twenty minutes, Manni will surely suffer severe consequences. Set to a throbbing techno score, "Lola's like a human stun gun!" Peter Rainer, New York Magazine.

From Amazon.co.uk

It's difficult to create a film that's fast paced, exciting and aesthetically appealing without diluting its dialogue. Run Lola Run, directed and written by Tom Tykwer, is an enchanting balance of pace and narrative, creating a universal parable that leaps over cultural barriers. This is the story of young Lola (Franka Potente) and her boyfriend Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu). In the space of 20 minutes, they must come up with 100,000 deutsche marks to pay back a seedy gangster, who will be less than forgiving when he finds out that Manni incompetently lost his cash to an opportunistic vagrant. Lola, confronted with one obstacle after another, rides an emotional roller coaster in her high-speed efforts to help the hapless Manni--attempting to extract the cash first from her double-dealing father (appropriately a bank manager), and then by any means necessary. From this point nothing goes right for either protagonist, but just when you think you've figured out the movie, the director introduces a series of brilliant existential twists that boggle the mind. Tykwer uses rapid camera movements and innovative pauses to explore the theme of cause and effect. Accompanied by a pulse-pounding soundtrack, we follow Lola through every turn and every heartbreak as she and Manni rush forward on a collision course with fate. There were a variety of original and intelligent films released in 1999, but perhaps none were as witty and clever as this little gem--one of the best foreign films of the year. --Jeremy Storey, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I first saw this late one night on Channel 4, and immediately realised i was seeing an incredibly original, quirky, intelligent thriller, of the kind that had - to my mind - been absent since the early '90's heyday of Man Bites Dog, True Romance and Reservoir Dogs.
I won't go into the plot, as it'll spoil it, but suffice to say, it keeps you gripped to the end. ( People who are currently reading about certain branches of Quantum Physics may want to take a look ).
Of course, this is the film which kick-started Franka Potente's career, and she makes a truly engaging heroine here. In fact, you could say that this film has overshadowed her career so far, and not even great lead roles in The Bourne Identity and indie chiller Creep have eclipsed the fiery Lola in this movie.
For the price listed here, I'm even tempted to buy it all over again just to dish out to my mates. An absolute bargain.

This film is a real modern classic - beautifully directed and bursting with originality. The story is fairly simple: Lola's boyfriend Manni has accidentally left a carrier-bag full of money from a mob deal on the Metro, and he is meeting his boss to hand over the cash. His last chance is to phone Lola to tell her that she has 15 minutes to get 100 000 marks and save his life. This leads to lots of wonderful, cinematic shots of Lola running around Berlin to try and find the money and get to Manni before it's too late. The story is told three times, each time with a small change at the beginning which results in the story unfolding in a very different way. (In this sense, the film is very much an exploration of the idea of conditionality.) This is a real gem of a film from one of Europe's most gifted contemporary directors.

This sort of "What if..." scenario has been done before in movies like Groundhog Day, Sliding Doors, etc, but Run Lola Run outshines them all, highlighting how the smallest of changes in certain starting conditions can have profound effects in the outcome.
The pacing, soundtrack and direction is just perfect in this film. It's a classic.
By the way, the DVD seems to default to the English dubbed version. DO NOT WATCH IT LIKE THIS! Switch the language to the original German and the subtitles on. It's much much better.
Reasonably good extras on the DVD too, with a director's commentary, cast profiles, and a music video by Franka Potente.
All in all highly recommended. Buy this now!

This film is packed with content and meaning, good script, great plot and storyline/s. It's the epitome of what film making is all about because every aspect of the film is of high standard, music, acting, editing, and photography all come together to make for a great experience. What is wonderful about this film is its sense of time, going from moments of great stillness to moments of hectic pace and then back again. Oh and if your tired of Hollywood's idea of good looks the two leading performers in this film are stunning in a very central European sort of way. The menu system for subtitles and language is very awkward and you simply must watch in German with subtitles. The dubbed versions are awful.

I have always tried very hard not to say a movie was awesome, but I feel compelled to say that this German gem from 1999 is as awesome as awesome can be. I've never seen anything like Run, Lola, Run; it's a film that doesn't sound as if it should really work, yet its presentation is dazzling and mesmerizing. Franka Potente gives an incredible performance, her talents as visible as her bright pink hair. There's nothing misleading about the title. Lola runs and runs some more; Franka Potente could probably have tried out for the German Olympic team after all the running she had to do here.
The strengths of this movie are its unique vision, stunning cinematography, and pulse-pounding soundtrack, but here's a breakdown of the plot. Lola (Potente) and Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) are in love, and like most couples in love we find the man doing something really stupid and blaming the woman. Manni does a little work for a mafia-type fellow, and his latest job involves the delivery of one hundred thousand marks to his boss. Lola was supposed to meet him in town, but she was late, and Manni ended up accidentally (yet still very stupidly) leaving his bag o' cash on a train for a bum to pick up and run off with. Now he has twenty minutes to come up with one hundred thousand marks before having to face Mr. Big. Lola was late because her bike was stolen, yet of course the whole mess is her fault, according to Manni. I'll cut the guy some slack here, though; knowing you are about to be rubbed out tends to put a little stress on the system. Lola takes off, trying to come up with the money and get it to Manni before the top of the hour.

This is a high action, fast paced, thrilling film. The idea behind the movie is that just taking a second longer to make a decision can greatly change your life. Lola has to come up with 100 000 marks in 20mins to save her boyfriend. If you want a film with lots of energy and a bit of a difference then this is a great film to watch one evening.
My big problem was that i had to watch this dubbed. I like foreign films and i don't mind reading subtitles, but i cannot stand dubbing. It's awful when thier lips are moving at the wrong time and these european actors in a German setting are speaking with english accents! I'm not sure about the dvd version i had, but if you can be sure that you can watch it subtitled in the German language then i'd imagine it would be better. Depends whether dubbing bugs you like it does me or not though.
