A short review.

Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run) is a fast-paced German thriller bursting with youthful energy and originality. Written and directed by Tom Tykwer and released in 1998, this colorful film runs on a high-energy soundtrack, believable acting, and flashy cinematic technique. The story follows Lola’s boyfriend, Manni, who, having lost 100,000 deutschmarks owed to some local gangsters, calls Lola for help from a payphone. Lola, after realizing Manni wants to rob a store to solve this problem, asks him to wait for her. From this point, the audience sees Lola run to assist Manni three times, each with different outcomes due to timing changes in her run. In the end, this film proves to be a masterpiece of artful cinema, and a thrilling piece of entertainment you won’t want to miss.
