Synopsis:
Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who works as a small-time courier for a big-time gangster, is in huge trouble. He has accidentally left the cash from a mob deal on the subway, and he has only twenty minutes to deliver the 100,000 marks to his unforgiving boss. Desperate, he calls his girlfriend, Lola (Franka Potente), the only person who can rescue him from certain death. As the seconds tick away and the tiniest choices become life altering, Lola must try to reach Manni before the line between fate and fortune begins to blur.
One story told from three different perspectives, 'Run Lola Run' is a veritable maze of intriguing plot twists and heart-stopping suspense in a high-octane thrill ride about one woman's desperate attempt to save her lover.

A Stylish and frantic thriller. - Run Lola Run review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
19/03/2006

The plot of 'Run Lola Run' revolves around the character of Lola whose boyfriend is supposed to transport 100,000 Deutschmarks to a local gangster, but somehow manages to lose the money. In a panic her boyfriend phones her to say that if he doesn't give the gangster his money within 20 minutes, he will be killed. Immediately, Lola sets off running through the streets of Berlin in a frantic quest to locate the lost money. The twist is that Lola's 20 minute journey is shown three times, with each journey producing very different outcomes, determined by minor events that happen to Lola as she runs. This frantic, thriller starts at breakneck speed and never slows down, and is one of the most involving and stylish movies I've seen in a long time. The diverse visual style of the film cleverly switches from black and white, to animation, slow motion, fast motion, still shots, split screen and is amazing to watch. The film also cleverly shows how the smallest of events can have enormous consequences on not just ourselves, but also everyone around us. If you're looking for an exciting and unusual, action thriller then 'Run Lola Run' is a must see.

Run Lola Run - Run Lola Run review by Cherry

Spoiler Alert
19/06/2006

A modern and original German film. In some ways like Sliding Doors in the way that it focusses on small actions that can effect the path that your life takes. When the first scenario finished, my boyfriend told me that the film was only 30 minutes long and that was it! Glad it was longer.

Unusual film - Run Lola Run review by CP Customer

I've never rented a German film (with English subtitles) before so this was a bit of a risk. However, the film is great, if you've ever been to Berlin you'll appreciate the location and the acting / story kept me gripped till the end.
