Run Lola Run

Run Lola Run

Lola rennt

In this visually and conceptually impressive film, two-bit Berlin criminal Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) delivers some smuggled loot for his boss, but accidentally leaves the 100,000 mark payment in a subway car.

Given 20 minutes to come up with the money, he calls his girlfriend, Lola (Franka Potente), who sprints through the streets of the city to try to beg the money out of her bank manager father (Herbert Knaup). The situation seems hopeless. The clock starts ticking and Lola runs.

Presented by the Goethe-Institut.

Run Lola Run could very well be the punchiest piece of concept art to ever hit the silver screen, a shock-dose of German existential cinema you can ride.
