Run Lola Run

A thrilling post-MTV roller-coaster ride, Run Lola Run is the internationally acclaimed sensation about two lovers who have only minutes to change the course of their lives -- and time is running out. Lola (Franka Potente) just received a frantic phone call from her boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who lost a small fortune belonging to his mobster boss. If Lola doesn't replace the money in 20 minutes, Manni will suffer the consequences.

“[Lola] is like the avatar in a video game--Lara Croft made flesh.” – Roger Ebert.

“It's a furiously kinetic display of pyrotechnics from the director Tom Tykwer, who fuses lightning-fast visual tricks, tirelessly shifting styles and the arbitrary possibilities of interactive storytelling into the best-case scenario for a cinematic video game.” – The New York Times.

Winner of the Audience Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.
