After fiddling some money Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) has to deliver 20000 DM. Unfortunately he leaves the cash in the subway - a dosser (Joachim Krol) is very happy about that. Now there are 20 minutes remaining for Manni to deliver the money otherwise he's for the high jump. Desperately he phones his girl-friend Lola (Franka Potente) who helped him out of every situation so far. Will she be able to get 100000 DM in twenty minutes. Well, there are different ways to do that...
 

Comments

More of an experiment than a movie This movie took the 68th spot on the Top 250?And I thought the AFI's list was crap.Maybe it's just me, but I don't visualize this movie beside "Casablanca" and "Gone with the Wind" in movie history. Just like "El Mariachi" this is another import/experimental action flick in which style (massively) outweighs substance.This is one of those movies I would've been impressed with if it were entered as a student film.Its visual style is the kind you would spot in a student film, and I would give it top honors if it were submitted as a project of an amateur filmmaker. But when you view it as part of mainstream cinema...it's far from impressive. The lightning-fast pacing and sequence of events is reminiscent of Doug Liman's "Go," but that film--though a bit cheesy--enabled us to get to know the characters.In "Run Lola Run" the characters are no more than players in a video game.The film's use of split screens and other techniques is fun at first, but just like the original "Thomas Crown Affair" it causes it to wear out its welcome.The makers of this film were just trying too damn hard!Constantly bombarding us with gratuitous visuals, as if this whole film would crumble to pieces if the audience were to get bored for one split second.And why was Lola running?I guess...because it looks better on screen!Sure, being a guy, I love to see the beautiful Franka Potente running around the sidewalks in a low-cut top.I've never traveled to Germany, but I'm sure she could've been able to find some sort of transportation!It's elements like that which cause you to ponder, "Why is the filmmaker trying so hard???"There are visuals in this movie that have little or nothing to do with the scenes they're placed in.That's not stunning, that's what you call "pretentious." I have to admit that the soundtrack is excellent.That's one of the things I liked most about the film.And I can't say there's an actual "dull" moment--tiresome, sometimes, but never dull."Run Lola Run" seems like what would happen if the editors of a film were to leave their 5-year-old sons or daughters in the editing room by themselves and permitted them to play around with the different devices and have as much fun as they want.A film of this kind would've been better off as a video game.A motion picture should at least require plot and/or characters.If neither are present, what do you have? Exactly..."Run Lola Run."Not a movie, an experiment.A great technical exercise, but barely a motion picture. My score:5 (out of 10)
