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!
