Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's difficult to create a film that's fast paced, exciting, and aesthetically appealing without diluting its dialogue. Run Lola Run, directed and written by Tom Tykwer, is an enchanting balance of pace and narrative, creating a universal parable that leaps over cultural barriers. This is the story of young Lola (Franka Potente) and her boyfriend Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu). In the space of 20 minutes, they must come up with 100,000 deutsche marks to pay back a seedy gangster, who will be less than forgiving when he finds out that Manni incompetently lost his cash to an opportunistic vagrant. Lola, confronted with one obstacle after another, rides an emotional roller coaster in her high-speed efforts to help the hapless Manni--attempting to extract the cash first from her double-dealing father (appropriately a bank manager), and then by any means necessary. From this point nothing goes right for either protagonist, but just when you think you've figured out the movie, the director introduces a series of brilliant existential twists that boggle the mind. Tykwer uses rapid camera movements and innovative pauses to explore the theme of cause and effect. Accompanied by a pulse-pounding soundtrack, we follow Lola through every turn and every heartbreak as she and Manni rush forward on a collision course with fate. There were a variety of original and intelligent films released in 1999, but perhaps none were as witty and clever as this little gem--one of the best foreign films of the year. --Jeremy Storey

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely fast-paced and exciting Dec 29 1999
By John
Format:DVD
Run Lola Run was the first movie on DVD that I had ever purchased without seeing it first. I based my purchase on the great reviews of the film I had read time and time again. The DVD arrived this week and I was not dissapointed.
The film is only 81 minutes long, and is extremely fast-paced and tense for the entire time. You really have to pay attention during the movie and suspend disbelief for a while to really enjoy this one.
The quality of the DVD transfer is very good. The picture is great, and the sound is outstanding (the film has a good heavy soundtrack). The extras on the disc aren't too exciting, but it is nice to have both German/English language tracks as well as English/French/None subtitles. I thought the english dubbing was done exceptionally well (except for the first scene).
One interesting thing to note is that it is a double sided DVD, with the fullscreen version on one side and the widescreen version on the other side. There is no label on the DVD... only very very tiny print on the innermost rim of the disc. You have to have some good eyes to read it.
I highly recommend this movie. But get it on DVD. It wouldn't be half as good on VHS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Run Lola Run, a presentation of the atypical May 11 2004
Format:DVD
Run Lola Run, directed by Tom Tykwer, confronts stereotypes produced by Hollywood, with its unique graphic and audial representation as well as plot technique. Lola, our heroine, has 20 minutes to reach boyfriend Mani with a replacment for the money which he has been placed in charge of and lost. Lola is far from our average American female lead. Her hair is bright red, she's loud, and is imbued with superhuman powers. Not only is she able to sprint all-out for thirty minutes, she also is able to make it accross Berlin in this amount of time, and appears briefly as a cartoon character. Despite all this, in all of the scenarios, Lola never succeeds. Tykwer employs the use of three different senarios that play upon the butterfly effect and illustrate situations that Lola may or may not have experienced on her journey to Mani. The film is very contrary to stereotypes perpetuated by American cinema. Lola is everything but a heroine; she does not possess extraordinary beauty, has no control over her situation, and is unable to succeed in any area of her life it seems. She is unemployed (depicted by her low quality clothing) and so is her boyfriend Mani, apparently.
Tykwer's use of unusual graphic depiction (cartoons), techno ambience (created by the musical track, which does not allow the viewer to rest), and portrayal of Lola as the anti-heroine all create such an unrealistic combination as to contrast and expose the lack of reality in traditional female heroines and movies.
The original tital Lola Rennt (Lola Runs), was translated into Run Lola Run. Lola, who was originally running of her own volition, is now being told to run, presumably by Mani, a source of patriarchy in Lola's life. Lola runs to her father in the scenarios, requesting money from him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Run Lola Run a Review by A.McBride May 11 2004

Format:DVD
Run Lola Run A Review by Ashley McBride
In this film, Lola is a very un-stereotypical heroine who undergoes three nearly identical episodes in which to save her lover Manny from his mob boss.
The character of Lola critiques the Hollywood mainstream heroine in many ways. She is not a contrived Hollywood beauty. She has bright orange/red hair and punk clothing which offer a disassociative affect for the viewer, allowing them to critique the mainstream heroine and the priorities of Hollywood to alter her into a commodity rather than a true hero. She also has superhuman ability, first to alter outcomes (chaos theory) and second, to see into the future (snapshots). This also offers the viewer a chance to disassociate with her because she is unlike the viewer; though she seems real, is she? She is saving he. This is a main point because this allows the viewer to critique the "damsel in distress" role that females normally play. Lola takes control. This is prevalent especially when the exact translation of the German title is given "Lola Runs." This title more accurately portrays Lola in control-a genuine hero who is motivated to succeed so much so that she risks her life in three episodes/ tries. Lola remains a hero the whole way through the film, unlike most mainstream Hollywood heroines. Though she is unable to help Manny (because he ends up helping himself) she still gets there on time with the money retrieved (in a legitimate manner) in the last episode. She tried, tried again, and then succeeded-which makes her the hero of the story.
The cinematic effects of camera angle, cartooning, and electronic weaving all serve to disassociate the viewer from the film, in order to step back and critique it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You would regret watching it so Late April 24 2002
Format:DVD
I came across the movie when I saw it being featured in almost all of the foreign movie section In all the online movie stores. I got fascinated with the red haired girl in the poster and the name Run Lola Run itself. But I hate to read the sub titles so I never ordered it.
One day my friend told me that he had watched the movie in a class. He start telling me the story. Then I can not keep myself from ordering it.
The movie is simply one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is fast paced with the techno music to compliment its faced paced speech. The director uses quite amazing and unconventional techniques (at least in American cinema) of using the animation and photographs to tell the story. And believe this style adds the very interesting dimension to the movie than dragging it.
A must see movie so I would not give out much of the story. The main character Lola (of course the red head one) needs to save her boyfriend's life by giving a local gangster hundred thousand dollars in twenty minutes. See Lola and her boyfriend racing against time to do it. On the way, there some interesting folks and some interesting thing going on.
If you can, buy DVD instead of VHS. DVD can be viewed both in windscreen or am orphic versions. It can be watched either in German or English and it has music video to complement it.
